    The Old Town of Olomouc is full of amazing sights such as fountains, picturesque buildings, pillars and columns. Out of the latter, Holy Trinity Column stands out. Being one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, one cannot expect anything less impressive.

    A beautifull cathedral that is poetic and inspiring. I loved photos that were taken when there was still corona, they hung them inside - the photos show people believing in it getting better and wanting to feel closer to god even though it was difficult-. The cathedral is a beautiful place and an old mister that was so generous to show us this place, explained the history of this place. Beautiful visit.

    This church is huge and the decoration inside is stunning. Built on top of a hill overlooking the valley and Olomouc you can look back and see the pilgrim road. The church is more a cathedral in size and beauty. Well worth a visit.

    Dominating the upper town square, this building has been spectacularly renovated. It has been well worth the wait.

    Beautiful architecture and so important historically.

    St. Moritz is the most sympathetic church in Olomouc. On the one hand with its simple exterior, on the other hand with its viewing platform at the top. Inside is the organ of the best sound in the whole Czech Republic. Come to Mass and listen to this organ.

    I liked this new fountain, which was created in 2002 as part of the reconstruction of the Upper Square. Especially two big turtles were very nice. One of them was situated in the water, but the second one was located next to the fountain, much to the delight of children that could climb or sat on it. There were quite a lot of benches around and people sat there, relaxed and enjoyed watching the fountain.

    Main reason for going to see a memorial to the crew of a B-24 Liberator bomber shot down in WW II. Half the crew survived. My uncle did not. The names of all of the crew members are listed on the impressive and tasteful monument. This was created by the Czech Association of Airmen in appreciation for the American effort in the war.

    I only saw the building from the outside during a walk by the river and in the outskirts of Olomouc, but it was already impressive enough. Beautiful place, it's worth getting out of the city center for.

    It is a nice little chapel to remember on St. John Sarkander. When we were there it was unforunately closed, but still we could take a look inside.

    Decided on a whim while walking by to drop in here and we were glad we did. Had a great tour through the rooms with a very helpful guide and the assistance of some hand-held audio devices. The tour itself was a bit over half an hour which is perfect if one is only in Olomouc for a day visit. By all means check it out!

    In Olomouc there are so many roman-catholic churches, that this was a wonder when we realized that they know even other religion. Very nice from out, sorra we couldn't get in.
