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.

1993年にマザーテレサ、1995年に ヨハネ パウロ2世 がオロモウツを訪問されました。このことによりオロモウツはモラヴィア地方のスピリチュアルセンターとして位置づけられています。.


オロモウツは 教会, 礼拝堂, 宮殿や修道院が一箇所に集中して建てられているという大変珍しい場所です。千年の歴史を誇るモラビアのスピリチュアル都市であるオロモウツには独特で魅惑的な雰囲気を味わうことができます。

モラヴィアで最も高い尖塔を持つネオゴチック様式の 聖ヴァーツラフ大聖堂 の気高さは、その場所で起きた重要な宗教、歴史的な出来事の意義を強固にしています。およそ千年前の プジェミスル宮殿 は独創的な 大司教管区博物館 その内装は、オロモウツ司教及び大司教コレクションの宝物や芸術品により装飾されています。

壮麗な 聖モリツ教会 には中欧で2番目に大きなオルガンがあり、巨大な中世の塔からは街が一望できます。疑いようもなく、大司教宮殿 は旅行者にとって一見の価値があるものです。この場所では装飾された豪華なホールでオーストリアフランツ ヨーゼフ1世 の皇位戴冠式が行われました。現在大司教の事務所にちょっと見ることが出来ます。 聖ヤン サルカンデル礼拝堂 にはヤン・サルカンデルが拷問され殺された拷問器具が保存されています。1995年に 聖ヤン サルカンデルは、このオロモウツの地でローマ教皇 ヨハネ パウロ2世 によって聖人と認められました。

美しい 聖ミカエル教会, 聖三位一体柱 イエズス会学院施設や教会は代表的なオロモウツバロックです。フラシスコ修道院は、その大きさや気高さからモラヴィアのエスコリアルと呼ばれています。聖なる丘のバジリカはイェセニーキ山の麓にあり、肥沃なハナー地方を一望できます。教皇 ローマ教皇ヨハネ パウロ2世も訪問されました
