Olomouc in general is very nice and historic city and this in only one of many nice locations and monuments. Located very close to all other attractions, shopping and restaurant option. In summer great sport to hang out.

Beautiful UNESCO piece. It is the biggest Baroque sculptural group in the Czech Republic. Just go there take your time, sit and enjoy the atmosphere!

but it only gets 4 out of 5 because the sandstone could use a restoration cleaning. It would be nice to see it glowing red-yellow as I assume it was originally intended.

a very interesting column in the main square of olomouc - try to go at a time when you can get a guide and even go inside (it's small but very interesting).

The Trinity Column is at the central location of Olomouc and among the best place to visit for people of all age (kids, young couples and senior citizens). Besides several beautiful artistic fountains, the astronomical clock, view from top of it and mayor building are appreciative.

You will see this, it is hard to miss. Looks neat at night all lit up. It is right in the main square near the clock and town hall and several fountains.

it is a lovely place to walk around. Old Town is the best place to wander without aim, until you get to the Katedrala Svateho Vaclava. There beware of drunk but gentle beggars.

Built in the early 18th century following a plague, this tower is the largest in Europe and has a fascinating history.
