Olomouc Through Photographs

University cities are the new topic of our weekly series, and the aim is to bring to our readers the best of the places that are truly students‘ cities. One of these is Olomouc in the Czech Republic – a beautiful small city nearly 300 km east of the capital of Prague. Whoever visits Olomouc will agree that it is a wonderful place to live. Olomouc’s slower pace, as the locals happily admit, makes people cheerful and welcoming. What more does Olomouc offer? See our photogallery.
