大抵のチェコを訪れる観光客は、非常に残念なことであるが、このチェコ第5の都市を見落としている。ここはかって帝国の非常に重要な町の一つたったのである。現在は、その過去の栄光とともに、10,000の学生が学ぶPalacky大学の町でもあり、観光客もすくなく、非常にのんびりとした雰囲気のある町である。

Sight

The best thing about Olomouc's sights is that most of them are free, because walking through the town square (Horni nam), you can see the many fountains, and town hall.
S1 City Hall and Astronomical Clock
This is the picture postcard of Olomouc. Situated in the middle of the town square. At night the city hall lights up giving a perfect example of renaissance architecture. The tower rises 75m above the town. It can be climbed at 11.00, 12.00 and 17.00 daily, with an English speaking guide for 10Kc and 5Kc for students. Not as famous as it Prague's counterpart, Olomouc clock was built in 1947 but is still interesting to see the mechanics of it.
S2 Holy Trinity Column
Built in 1716 - 1754, this is the greatest piece of baroque statuary in the Czech lands. More than 30 meters high it positioned in front of the town hall and also lights up with the sun goes down. What is most charming about it, is at night the local musicians gather on its steps and play through the night.
S3 Fountains
Olomouc is the city of fountains. There are over 7 in the old town and are incredibly popular with children on hot days. The most popular one is Caesar's Fountain built in 1725. Other fountains, situated around Horni nam, are the Hercules' Fountain (1687), Jupiter's Fountain (1734), Mercury's Fountain (1727) and Neptune's' Fountain (1683)
S4 City Fortification
The old town is surrounded by the crumbling city walls built around the early 18th century, in defense of southern and western attacks. On the southern side if the old towns are restaurants that are built into the arches of the walls.
