One of the oldest cities in the Czech Republic, Olomouc has a history dating back over a thousand years and a well-preserved old town. Some of the notable landmarks and buildings in Olomouc include the Holy Trinity Column (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Olomouc Castle, the Town Hall with an astronomical clock and numerous churches and monasteries. Olomouc is well-connected by road and rail, making it accessible from other major cities in the Czech Republic. Be sure to try Olomoucké tvarůžky while you’re here; a type of pungent cheese that is a local speciality.
