Save to List
City in 🇨🇿 Czechia with a population of around 100 thousand people.

Olomouc is a sleeper. Practically unknown outside the Czech Republic and underappreciated at home, the city is surprisingly majestic. The main square is among the country’s nicest, surrounded by historic buildings and blessed with a Unesco-protected trinity column. The evocative central streets are dotted with beautiful churches, testament to the city’s long history as a bastion of the Catholic church. Explore the foundations of ancient Olomouc Castle at the must-see Archdiocesan Museum, then head for one of the city’s many pubs or microbreweries, fuelled by the thousands of students who attend university here. Don’t forget to try the cheese, Olomoucký sýr or tvarůžky, reputedly the smelliest in the Czech Republic.

What people say

Olomouc has a few Unesco sights, but they are concentrated in the centre and once you walked past them twice they are not that interesting. There are bunch of cool coffee places all around and it's a great idea to take a bike and ride up the Svatý kopeček or to Poděbrady in the middle of the summer.
