I truly adore this place. Not that much church itself but stairs in front of it. If you go there on sunny clear day you can see from stairs whole Olomouc and fields around. Especially sunset is truly spectacular there. Great for just sitting there, relax and enjoy the view.

Although we cheated (hired a car) bus 11 takes you very near the church (and you get to see the countryside too!). The church is extremely ornate and impressive - and just when I thought I was churched out! The view is spectacular and it is a lovely walk around the area.

The basilica is a 15-minute drive outside of the center of Olomouc. It is situated on top of the Holy Hill. When dark, the basilica is visible the moment you leave Olomouc city and keeps on getting bigger until you get to the top of the hill. You can also do the last piece of the pilgrimage. Instead of following... More

Friends from Olomouc took us to the Basilica. It's a scenic ride through the countryside and the church on Holy Hill is visible from a distance. It's a beautiful church, well worth your time. Views from the top of the hill are breathtaking.

The Basilica is on a hill top a few miles outside Olomouc. It really is a great location, with lovely views over the countryside. The church is quite atmospheric inside. There's not much else to do in the village - when I visited in December the cafes and zoo weren't open. You can get there on bus 11 from the... More

The place is worth visiting even if you have just two days for Olomouc and its surroundings. Phone in advance to arrange for a guide; if they have time, they are willing to show places normally closed to visitors. Excellent location on top of a hill with excellent view ( come on a bright day!)

A historical church and monastery located on a hill overlooking the city. The surrounding grounds are well kept, and lovely to take a stroll and discover little gems.

Although Svaty Kopecek - Trip Adviosior PLEASE, correct the awful mistakes in many Czech indication, including this one!!!, is cca 10 kms outside of town, please, count in 2 or 3 hours to visit the place. You may easily reach it with town bus heading for the ZOO, Radikov, Losov. The church is a baroque jewel with magnificent frescas painted... More
