See the impressive organ, then take the intertwining staircase to get a great view of the city. Entrance is 20kc.

St Moritz church in Olomouc is one of the city's most notable landmarks.

Built on the site of an earlier church that was destroyed by lightning in 1398, the church of St Moritz took a century and a half to complete and is one of the best examples of Early Gothic architecture in the Czech lands.

Highlights are the stained glass windows, the main Gothic altar, and the Mount of Olives sculptures that once adorned an external crypt but were moved inside for preservation.

St Moritz also boasts one of the world's largest pipe organs. In addition to regular services, the Engler organ is used for recordings of classical music and the International Festival of Organ Music, which begins annually in late September.

The taller of the asymmetric pair of bell towers survived from the older church. The viewing platform on its roof is accessible to the public via an elegantly intertwining pair of spiral staircases as far as the level of the bells and a more modern steel construction from there. It's quite a climb but the 360 degree views are the best in Olomouc and entry to the tower is a symbolic 15CZK.
