Big monument in Olomouc. Nice old cathedral, similar to lot of churches but majestic and monumental in scale of Czech Rep.

Olomouc's Cathedral dominates the city. The interior is interesting with the collonades and the perspective of the arcs. Apart from this it's just nice. It's good that it's for free.
