I love the location of this church and it's architecture. From Olomouc's main square walk up Michalska street to the Church, cute little street. Inside the church you can climb to the top near the bell and get a great view of Olomouc. This church with it's 3 domes is a beautiful landmark. It's a Roman Catholic church and one... More

This is possibly the most beautiful of all churches in Omolouc. Unfortunately several parts are under renovation, though this should not put your visit off.

This church is so old and was built on the foundations of an even earlier site. You can appreciate this free attraction and climb the tower for great views and get up close to the 3 large bells. A small museum section and below ground natural spring.

St. Michael is really pretty. It's free to enter. The church was very quiet, and people were praying. We walked out into a courtyard on the right side of the alter. There's one door with a staircase going down into a cellar with a kneeler and a shrine-looking thing. Then there's another door with a winding staircase that goes up... More

Definately one must go there - and climb the tower. Look for grotto with Holy Water that can perform miracles ;)

Take some time to wander around St. Michael's it's a great place to spend an hour or so. Don't forget to take the staircase up to the bell tower and visit the restoration gallery on the way. Superb views up there too.

This is the 1st church I visited in Olomouc. I was lucky and it was opened!!!! There was not a single person inside. The interior is stunning. There are a few domes beautifully decorated. The church is under restoration so the altar is not fully visible. I noticed an open door on the right hand side (almost getting to the... More

Step inside the church of St Michael and you're greeted by an ornate baroque interior, unexpected after the comparatively simple exterior. Extraordinary golden light comes in through the dome and a magnificent organ spans the rear wall. On our visit, the cloister held an exhibition striking photos. Off the cloister, low narrow steps lead down to a small pool and... More

This church is erected on the 1250 church site (of which remains are preserved) and in the present shape is an impressive temple with three large domes, which dominate the Upper Market area. These domes represent the Holy Trinity (make sure you stand under the biggest one and look up to see a sculpture oof Holy Spirit highlighted by the... More
