A nice tranquil and peaceful retreat in Olomouc, best enjoyed when you go alone, sit on a bench and think, observe and relax.

To my opinion the most beautiful place to see in Olomouc! So quiet inside, not many tourists (as on main square)

Located at the far end of Olomouc, it is about a fifteen minute walk from the old town square to this cathedral. The spires are clearly visible as you walk towards it, so it is very easy to find. It is very typical of cathedrals...More

Beautiful, helps orientation, pleasant to sit in and watch proceedings, an impressive item of architecture from outside but quite usual in its ornaments both outside and inside. Without comparing, though, it's worth a visit.

Nice church you can visit for free as you tour the downtown Olomouc. The outside is quite impressive and the inside very well finished and decorated. Worth the detour.

Just a short walk away from the town's center, so this church is definitely worth the visit if you are visiting Olomouc. Beautiful both outside and inside, photography is allowed and entry is free.

It is so grand and the feeling of such a Church was totally amazing. We walked from the Central and it was open. When entered someone was practicing the organ and it sounded so beautiful 👍. This is a must to visit when in Olomouc....More

Check out the beautiful and ornate decorations in the nave and be sure not to miss the “relics” e.g. skulls and bones not only in the mausoleum in the cellar but also in the main cathedral (st. Jan).
