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.

There are many beautiful old churches in Europe and this one is no exception. It's a bit tricky finding the entrance, situated in an interior square, and not on a main thoroughfare. The interior decor, organ pipes (demonstrations sometimes available), and the sanctity of this...More

St. Wenceslas Cathedral is the unmissable cathedral visible from just about anywhere in Olomouc. The current form of the structure is relatively new as the original did not dominate the city view. The interior is just typical and it is difficult to get a good...More

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).

If you know your Christian history, this bishopric that began with St. Methodius, colleague of Cyril. The Evangelista of the Slavs. Christ followers continue to do their outreach from this place. Don’t miss the museum next door. Don’t miss St Valentine’s relics.

The stained glass in this place alone is well worth the visit. The altar and side vestibules are also noteworthy. Definitely worth a visit.

The St. Wenceslas Cathedral is impressive and worth a visit as most of the main churches. We try to go there on Jan. 2nd around 17:00hrs. Bad luck. Already (?) closed with no mentioning of opening hours. We saw it the next day.

Situated a bit off the centre of Olomouc, there stands this wonderful cathedral. It´s really big and tall - just go there and you´ll see for yourselves how much you´ll like it. There is a "poesiomat" (poetry machine) with audio recording of some famous Czech...More
