Very nice church, beter said cathedral, including catacombs and coffins. Especially the storyline of the crucifixion of Jesus is interesting. All around the ship you find the story in progressive steps. Worth the small detour from the main square.

Olomouc is a lesser known, overlooked city to the north east of the Czech Republic. It is a pleasant city with a magnificent city centre around a large picturesque square, full of monuments with the Trinity column being the most notable. The large square is dotted by 5 amazing churches, each worth visiting. The city has a number of green... More

This cathedral is very beautiful. When you enter you can feel peace. The architecture is breathtaking. There is also a crypt below which is very interesting.

Walking up in Olomouc brings you to the Cathedral. Outside it's a beautiful building, and around the place there's plenty of space to admire it. Inside it's pretty too, but not the most beautiful of Olomouc. Open door's an invitation, so if you're there make sure to take a look around.

Very impressive beautiful cathedral friendly to visitors within walking distance from the center of the city. Parking was free on the Sunday we visited, lots of people with young children attended the mass. We leisurely strolled around on the inside, noting the detailed ornate decorations. Stairs on the left front lead below to an exhibition of religious artifacts and souvenirs,... More

We stayed in a pension not far away from the St. Wenceslas Cathedral. The cathedral was beautiful both inside and outside. The cathedral at Brno was even more beautiful and grand though. Anyway, worth a visit.

Another beauty in Olomouc is this church complex located next to city museum with great collection of art all ages..whole square felt very speacial, quite and unique. Church was based sometime 12 century and was reshaped many time until today. Make sure come here and walk around, there is so much to see in Olomouc and best is to stay... More

This cathedral allows you to study several architecture styles - romanesque, gothic, barocco - I am sure you learn more than from a textbook.
