This place represents a large chunk of the city's history, boasting jewels such as Edelman's organ with roughly 10 000 pipes, one of the largest in Europe. The interior is not as richly decorated as in other baroque churches in Olomouc, well, it is a gothic church after all. The tower offers breathtaking views of the whole city, and thanks... More

The interior of this church is well worth a visit, but while you are there be sure to go back outside and climb the tower to the top of the righthand church tower. It costs about $0.75, and you go up and down a unique dual spiral staircase. The views from the top let you see absolutely everything in the... More

A double spiral staircase leading up to the top of the old bell tower as close to the sky as phisically possible in the baroque city center of Olomouc. It is a really poetic symbol. In my understanding the uplifting encrypted message, the key, let's say the DNA of the church is this hidden treasure you might earn if you... More

St Moritz exterior isn't as imposing as other churches, but venture inside for a real treat. Don't miss climbing the bell tower. It's a steep, winding climb but the views from the top are worth the effort.

If you get a chance, hear an organ concert in this church like we did. That was a seriously impressive sound! Also, visit the church tower. After a scary and dizzying climb up you are treated to a great view of the city!
