Olomouc at the top



Three years, three excellent awards by the world’s prestigious guidebook. Lonely Planet made a list of the most beautiful, yet lesser known tourist destinations. It wasn’t the hot springs of Iceland, Gibraltar Rocks, Odysseus' Ithaca or Luxemburg that ranked in first place but the historical center of Olomouc!

The mini guidebook, Secret Europe, presents tourists with fifty cities from different parts of Europe. The largest, world-renowned guidebook publisher attracts tourists to Olomouc by saying that “in terms of tourism Olomouc can be equated to an authentic restaurant which is your own, small, personal secret. The Main Square is amongst the most enchanting in the country. It is surrounded by historical buildings. It is adorned by the Holy Trinity Column listed as the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Magnificent churches, many of which host an exciting history, are scattered in the streets of the historical center. Explore the foundations of the ancient Olomouc castle in the Archdiocese Museum which is a must-see and then set out to one of the many pubs or mini-breweries”. In 2012, the publisher also awarded Olomouc by ranking it in the top ten most beautiful hidden treasures in Europe. One year later it was once again on the list of the recommended destinations in Moravia. “It’s beautiful as well as surprising for us. Lonely Planet is to tourist guidebooks what Michelin is to gastronomy. I perceive it as a win in the tourist Olympics,” responded Olomouc mayor, Martin Major, when he first heard of the award. “I am very pleased that the professional editor-in-chief of this publication truly appreciates the beauty of our city, its picturesque atmosphere and its uniqueness.

Apart from other things, Olomouc captivated them by the fact that it offers the same architectural treasures as Prague but without the crowds of tourists. It is definitely Olomouc’s advantage in comparison with our capital. However, despite repeated acclaim from the renowned guidebook, it may only be temporary”, mentioned the mayor, Major, with a smile. The deputy mayor, Jan Holpuch added, “I believe that this is an opportunity to introduce our beautiful city to many other tourists.” “I think that being awarded as a hidden treasure or undiscovered city will give Olomouc an even stronger stamp of attractiveness and will evoke more interest in potential visitors.”

Olomouc has been trying to advertise its beauty in a high-quality and systematic way. In the past years, this attempt has proved effective. Statistically as well as simply looking into the streets of the city center confirms that the number of tourists to Olomouc has truly increased. Olomouc is on the list of destinations offered by travel agencies as for example, one-day trips from Prague or as a part of the Vienna – Krakow route. “Greater advertising in cooperation with the agency CzechTourism certainly helped.

This agency gives Olomouc more space than before”, says Karin Vykydalová, head of the tourism department. “Acclaim from Lonely Planet obviously helps. Ideally, a visitor comes here based on the recommendation, is satisfied here and then recommends Olomouc to his friends back home”, adds Dušan Gavenda of the same department.

王冠の塞は保存状態の良いオロモツ稜堡の要塞の一部です。1754年に建築が始まりました。この塞には5面の堡塁24、半面の25と23番があり、25と24番の間のカーテン・ウォールに門があります。王冠フォルトにはバロック様式の火薬庫、帝国様式の衛兵所の遺跡が保存されています。王冠の塞内には19世紀に2つの砲兵研究所が建築されています。王冠の塞には、町への通りに沿って木々や小路が作られ、町へ続く特別な入口という役割がありました。

オロモウツ城砦の廃止後、王冠の砦は兵隊達の所有となりましたが、市民にも開放され洗濯物を乾かすための場所としても使われていました。

王冠の塞は1945年に完全に閉鎖され、軍隊倉庫として使われました。1967年からはその一部が植物園とバラ園となり、20世紀末に市に返還され市の所有となりました。2008年2月からこの施設は非政府団体であるオロモウツ要塞博物館に管理されています。

FORTRESS OF KNOWLEDGE

At the end of 2014, a new interactive museum will open in a redoubt called the Fortress of Knowledge. Its expositions with more than 200 original exhibits will take you to the mysterious recesses of science. The museum will also include the first planetarium in the region. There will be information terminals with touchscreens and applications for smartphones and tablets, laboratories, ateliers and studios, as well as other state of the art technology. The premises are also intended for both school and after-school activities of pupils and students from far and wide, for parents or grandparents with children and for tourists from home and abroad.

The realization currently employs a team of experts from the Palacky University in Olomouc. The museum will be the first centre of science and research popularization in central Moravia. It will also host festivals and other successful events held by the Palacky University: Academia Film Olomouc, Science and Research Fair and children's summer schools.
