Olomouc on the banks of the Morava River in the Czech Republic is the historic capital of Moravia. It is a charming destination, with large squares boasting important architectural landmarks, the most famous of which is the Holy Trinity Column, built from 1716 to 1754 and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.
Another prominent must-see attraction is the Saint Wenceslas Cathedral, a neo-gothic edifice built and consecrated in 1131 when its style was Romanesque. In the XIII and XIV centuries the cathedral was extensively renovated and modified with Gothic elements. Gustav Meretta and R. Völkel redesigned the facade, the west front, and the central tower from 1883 until 1892. Finally, the cathedral was fully renovated again in 2004 – 2007.
There’s plenty to explore in the old part of the city. Don’t forget your camera to capture Instagram-worthy images such as these:
