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.

かつてのモラヴィア首都オロモウツは、中世には砦で固められておりモラヴィアの中心という機能を果たしていました。王国都市オロモウツの中世城砦は断片的にしか残されていませんが、ベズルチ園 で見られます。ユダヤと呼ばれた市への入場門も残っています。


1655年オロモウツは要塞の町になり、バロック様式の砦を建築し、1742~1756年テレジアと呼ばれた城砦建設によって完成されました。それによってオロモウツはボヘミア国だけではなく、全神聖ローマ帝国の中でも最も大きく、優れた稜堡の要塞のある町として考えられました。稜堡の要塞は完成後すぐに1758年 プロイセン軍により5週間の包囲に抵抗したという厳しい経験をしました。建設的に古代ローマの凱旋門に従って1752~1753年建築された、独特なテレジア門は観光の見どころとなります。本来の場所に保存されているものこれのみです。そして、壮大なテレジア兵器庫とはマリア・テレジア時代の軍事施設の典型例です。

バロック様式の要塞建設に関して、19世紀には「フォルト」と呼ばれた要塞リング (クジェロフ フォルト), ラディーコフ フォルト) など)で市の中心は完全に取り囲まれていました。そのためにオロモウツはあフォルトと呼ばれる要塞に囲まれるチェコで唯一の街となりました。しかし砦で固まれている町は開発発展が難しく、19世紀末取り外されました。
