Olomouc is almost 1000 years old. Unlike Ostrava, the city is breathtakingly beautiful. Very much like Ostrava, the city requires a comfortable pair of shoes and an interest in seeing and learning. Walking around in the historic centre of Olomouc was like stepping into another world; it was colourful, bright and optimistic. It had the feeling of a summer town; many places closed at noon on Saturday and we were quite on on our own when climbing the hills in the spacious centre.
