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.

Teatro Šantovka – è un nuovo teatro situato nella Galleria Šantovka. Ogni mese offre al pubblico un variegato programma culturale sia per adulti che per le famiglie con bambini. I visitatori avranno la possibilità di vedere gli spettacoli itineranti dove si presenteranno i volti noti dalla tv dai famosi teatri praghesi, come il Teatro v Řeznické, Švandovo divadlo, Teatro v Dlouhé e molti altri. Una delle principali linee drammaturgiche saranno le regolari fiabe per bambini e i loro genitori che sono richieste dal pubblico di Olomouc e le sue vicinanze. Ogni fine settimana i piccoli spettatori troveranno una vasta offerta di fiabe che li porta il teatro vivo. Oltre alle favole, il teatro Šantovka organizzerà anche altri eventi per bambini come ad esempio i carnevali, i balli per bambini, le serate divertenti competitive ma anche i workshop artistici o drammatici, la pittura del viso e molti altri eventi.

In mattinata, lo spazio del Teatro Šantovka servirà agli studenti delle scuole primarie e secondarie. Si pianifica la regolare produzione teatrale e programmi anche per i bambini dalle scuole materne. La sala completamente climatizzata con un'elevazione mobile che permette ad ogni spettatore di vedere bene il palcoscenico è costruita secondo le norme moderne, ha la capacità di 220 seduti e 300 spettatori in piedi. Ci si trova un foyer per passare piacevolmente il tempo durante la pausa della produzione e una soluzione generosa dei servizi pubblici che dovrebbe prevenire la formazione delle code lunghe.
