We were disappointed to find out that the tower was not open in October. Luckily the clockwork was operating and we saw the funny 12 o'clock performance.

A charming building and we only wish that we were staying til Sunday nights (when the Christmas markets opens). What a splendid sight the market place will be then and the Town Hall will complement it.

While in Olomouc is hard not to visit the market square and see the main attraction which are situated there (holy trinity column, town hall, clock etc). The town hall is a beautiful building and adds a lot the the surroundings with its style. Worth a see.

A great place, dominating Horni Namesti (Upper Square). Its most prominent feature is the Orloj - astronomical clock (like the one in Prague). Historical place, first erected in 1378, then re-constructed several times.

It's hard to miss the Olomouc Town Hall located in the Upper Square. Astronomical clock is situated on the north facade. Information center is found on the first floor. My husband took a tour to the top of the tower and got some great shots of Olomouc from the top.

The Gothic Town Hall dates from the 14th century. Its tower forms the north-west corner of the Council-house dating from 1443. The horologe on the Town Hall is alleged... More
