The visit of Pope John Paul II. to Olomouc in 1995 bears witness to an undiminishing importance of Olomouc as a religious center of Moravia. During this visit the Pope promoted the Church of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary on The Holy Hill to Minor Basilica.
Olomouc is a unique complex of landmarks, including churches, cathedrals and chapels, whose monumentality can be admired in many parts of the city center.
They will guide us across historical epochs and architectural styles from Romanesque to Neo-Gothic. The main landmark among cathedrals is the St. Wenceslas Cathedral and the Baroque domes of the St. Michael’s Church.
Most of the churches are accessible to the public, so now you too can enjoy the religious atmosphere of the interiors of many churches and chapels of Olomouc.
Other remarkable buildings include the former Hradisko Monastery which houses a military hospital today and the Archbishop's Palace, where Olomouc archbishops have resided since the 16th century. Franz Joseph I. of the House of Habsburg ascended the Imperial throne in this early Baroque palace in 1848. Pope John Paul II. stayed here during his visit in Olomouc.
