The historic town of Olomouc is the traditional regional center of Central and Northern Moravia. The history of the city goes back to the 7th century. However, according to archaeological research, its site was inhabited already in prehistoric times. The first historical record concerning an early-medieval castle in the city dates back to the year 1055. The Moravian bishopric was re-established in Olomouc in 1063.

The medieval town itself was founded in the early 13th century on the foundations of a trade settlement, which had existed around the castle. Its further development was predetermined by its function as the legal, ecclesiastical, trade and military center of the region, which the city has kept until present day.

The Olomouc protected urban monument area offers a multi-layered gallery of architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Classicist, Art Nouveau and Functionalist.

The Baroque reconstruction after the Thirty Years' War gave the town not only its monumental architecture of palaces, churches and monasteries, but also a unique collection of town fountains.

The Holy Trinity Column, a great Baroque sculpture created from 1716-1754, was placed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List in the year 2000.

Olomouc is situated 250 km east of Prague. It is accessible with a train. The ride takes about 3 hours.
