You will see for yourself when you visit the originally Gothic St. Wenceslas Cathedral, which is one of the oldest and most striking monuments in the city.
The main tower (100.65 m high), the second highest in the Czech Republic, contains the largest bell in Moravia, and the cathedral itself is among the most beautiful Gothic buildings in Central Europe. It is the most important cathedral in Moravia and its appearance is perfectly in line with its significance – it has a richly decorated interior and its crypt is the final resting place for the bishops and archbishops of Olomouc, e.g. Franz von Dietrichstein or Karl II von Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn. The largest Baroque presbytery in the Czech Republic was also built during the construction of the cathedral. St. Wenceslas Cathedral is one of the buildings that are located on the premises of the former Olomouc Castle.
