Olomouc is a city in Moravia, in the east of the Czech Republic and its located on the Morava River. It was the capital city of Moravia until 1641 and is the six-largest city in the country, with approximately 100,043 inhabitants.
Olomouc is doubtless the undiscovered gem of the Czech Republic. It is home to countless beautiful buildings, great culture (home of the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra), and hundreds of unique restaurants, bars, and pubs. Olomouc is totally off the radar of most tourists, feeling quietly normal and relaxed even on a nice day in July.
One of great cultural monuments in Olomouc is The Holy Trinity Column, which is protected by UNESCO. It is the largest group of Baroque statues within a single sculptural monument in Central Europe. The column reaches a height of 35 metres and its lower part houses a seasonally accessible chapel.
