Ostrava vs Olomouc, how to divide my day?

Hi everybody,

I'm planning a trip (end of April) between Krakow and Brno, and am passing through both Ostrava and Olomouc, and have allotted ~12 hrs to do so. My question is this: Roughly how much time should I devote to Ostrava as opposed to Olomouc? 50-50? 34-66? 25-75? Obviously the time is insufficient for proper visits, so what are the "must-see" places in both? Thanks in advance!

Give Olomouc more time if just passing through - Ostrava needs a few days to get the feel of the place, but it is great - I suppose the Serbian equivalent of Ostrava is Užice or Smederevo.

The charms of Olomouc are more immediate and it is a lot smaller - see the squares in the centre and the cathedral.
