On Svatý Kopeček in Olomouc, an area of 42.5 hectares spreads over a zoo that offers over 400 different animal species. It is open all year round and that its visit is worth it even during the winter, we convinced with our own eyes. Visitors can look forward not only to monkeys, beasts, giraffes, bats or beautiful wolves, but also to exotic creatures such as sharks. Every dog owner will be pleased to report that they can come here with their four-legged pet.

Today, we visit Olomouc a city in central part of Moravia which is known for its smelly cheese, landmarks, flower exhibition and rich history.
Endless hiking trails in unspoiled nature, meditation tranquility, cozy little village with interesting building monuments and in the center of everything a hotel with amazing wellness, where they will take care of their guests great. Isn't this the sky of a tourist? We are convinced.
To the glory of the church and as a thank you for protection against the danger of epidemics or war conflicts, monuments were erected in the most honorable places of cities. Today we will stop at the more ostentatious ones, they will fascinate us with their beauty and monumentality. But do we know their past and do we know why they decorate our square today?
Last week we started with our tour around Olomouc. We briefly told you about its history. The point of start was Horni square. The Holy Trinity column, and the town hall with a tower belong to its main landmarks.
Upon seeing Dolni and Zerotinovo squares, we walked down several streets and found ourselves on Horni square again. Church of St Moritz is located near to it.
We left Republiky sqaure for St Wenceslas Cathedral situated on Wenceslas square. The cathedral houses Roman Catholic archdiocesis of Olomouc. The grandiose Romanesque/Gothic structure has some Baroque features and rich decoration of sculptures. It is true jaded gem of the city.
Place of pilgrimage have some sort of indescribable atmosphere and it lures thousands to visit this place. Not long ago we enjoyed the beauty of Svaty Hostyn. This place has magic. Perhaps this is the reason for our later decision to visit yet another important site of pilgrimage in the Czech Republic - Svaty Kopecek.
