Olomouc's Cathedral dominates the city. The interior is interesting with the collonades and the perspective of the arcs. Apart from this it's just nice. It's good that it's for free.

Very nice church, beter said cathedral, including catacombs and coffins. Especially the storyline of the crucifixion of Jesus is interesting. All around the ship you find the story in progressive steps. Worth the small detour from the main square.

This cathedral is very beautiful. When you enter you can feel peace. The architecture is breathtaking. There is also a crypt below which is very interesting.

Walking up in Olomouc brings you to the Cathedral. Outside it's a beautiful building, and around the place there's plenty of space to admire it. Inside it's pretty too, but not the most beautiful of Olomouc. Open door's an invitation, so if you're there make...More

Very impressive, architecture. I was surprised at how much there was to see at this tiny location in the centre of Olomouc, a hidden gem and a must see place

Very impressive beautiful cathedral friendly to visitors within walking distance from the center of the city. Parking was free on the Sunday we visited, lots of people with young children attended the mass. We leisurely strolled around on the inside, noting the detailed ornate decorations....More
