“A must see when in Olomouc”

St. Kopecek Church and Monastery
Ranked #5 of 59 things to do in Olomouc
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 August 2012

Although Svaty Kopecek - Trip Adviosior PLEASE, correct the awful mistakes in many Czech indication, including this one!!!, is cca 10 kms outside of town, please, count in 2 or 3 hours to visit the place. You may easily reach it with town bus heading for the ZOO, Radikov, Losov. The church is a baroque jewel with magnificent frescas painted by Johann Krystof Haendke who was born in my home town Rymarov, about 45 kms north. By the way, come and see his early frescas in our Chapel V Lipkach. You furthermore may see his frescas in Olomouc churches and in the chapel of the Velke Losiny Chateau nearby Sumperk. Furthermore, the nicest views of Hana and of Olomouc are from this church. The meadow in the front of the church is also nice to take a blanket with, lie down and study or read a book. This is what students sometimes do, and I also used to do it.

This makes for a lovely half- to whole-day trip out of Olomouc, and especially on a nice, sunny day you get great views of the city and its surroundings. The monumental Church of the Visitation of Our Lady is the main attraction here, and rightly so.The church was built in the 17th and early 18th century, in the Baroque style. The 'Holy stairs' in front of the church, leading towards an alley of old trees in the direction to the city serve us as a reminder of 28 stairs in the Pilatus´s Jerusalem palace, which Jesus had to climb before his sentence to death. John Paul II honoured Svatý Kopeček by his visit in 1995, and in the same year the Church of the Visitation of Our Lady was given the title “basilica minor”.
There is also a ZOO (with almost 300 kinds of animals, incl. a famous ''bat house'' and a viewing tower) not too far from here - a plus if you have kids with you, and the forests around the village provide for a lovely walk, in case you had enough of man and his world.
