Introducing Olomouc

As countless tourists embrace the overt charms of Prague and Český Krumlov, Olomouc (Olla-moats) exudes a subdued appeal, emerging as the travellers’ equivalent of a special restaurant that is your own little secret. An old town square rivalling that in Prague for scale and beauty, combines with the youthful vivacity of a modern student town amid the graceful campus of the country’s second oldest university. Some of Moravia’s most impressive religious structures play host to a thrilling history, and a youthful population looks to the future with a quiet confidence. And, with tourist numbers at a mere trickle, Olomouc is one of the Czech Republic’s best-value cities.
