Basic Facts The first documented evidence of the town dates back to 1055 and, in terms of historical significance, Olomouc ranks second only to Prague. Here, marvel at the large collection of historical architecture and cultural monuments meticulously preserved in their original design in addition to the remains of a town from the Middle Ages.

The Upper Square (Horni namesti) - central square, see photo on the left - is dominated by the town hall with an astronomical clock and a Baroque Column of St. Trinity. The entire square is bordered by a string of well preserved palatial residences. The Saint Trinity Column is included in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.

The Church has had a strong influence on the spiritual, political as well as economic development of the town and its surroundings through the centuries. This effect is reflected in the majestic architecture and dιcor of the church buildings whose number, in ratio to population is the highest in the Czech Republic. This manner of display of history serves as a constant attraction for thousands of visitors from all over the world each year.
