Olomouc is a picturesque town full of romantic attractions. Its ancient city centre can easily be travelled around on foot. Walking there on a late summer early-evening, it is like tasting the colour of magic.
We will take you on a guided tour so that you may expose yourself to the unique genius loci of Olomouc.
The tour will take approx. 2 hours of (mostly) walking. It will end right in the very centre of Olomouc, in the Upper Square, from where everyone is free to extend the tour with his/her own experience of the Olomouc cafés, tearooms, bars, and pubs.
