While you are in Olomouc go see their cathedral, you will get to see, how smaller Czech towns did in comparison to Prague.

Exterior architecture and interior decoration both are beautiful. There appears to be a marijuana grow operation just around the corner. A little hard to find, and tucked away in a corner of the city.

For church and architecture lovers this is a really nice place to see. The gothic windows and arrangements are stunning. The acoustics here is just amazing (mind you you have to keep silent but trust me, it's great).

The imposing building and the interior of this church is impressive. The church rooftops had been recently restored and one can see the shining roofs from the city. The interior seems to be made up of 2 different chambers, leading to the sacred altar at the end of the building.

Although possessing an impressive exterior the inside seemed small & plain . Looked as if it might be suffering from 19th century restoration. As the seat of several past cardinals surprisingly little seems to have been spent.

We visited this Church and had many visual surprises. Built, rebuilt and remodeled through the centuries, this complex has lots of history and lots to see. The museum is across the way and St Anne's Chapel is next door. We saw the spires everywhere we went in Olomouc, so decided to just head that way and there it was. The... More
