English: Olomouc, founded, according to legend, by Julius Caesar, is the ecclesiastical metropolis and historical capital city of Moravia, in the east of the Czech Republic. Olomouc contains several large squares, the chief of which, Horní náměstí (Upper Square), is adorned with the Holy Trinity Column, built between 1716 and 1754 and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city has numerous historic religious buildings, the most prominent of which is Saint Wenceslas Cathedral founded before 1107 in the grounds of Olomouc Castle. At the end of the nineteenth century the cathedral was rebuilt in the neo-Gothic style but it retained many features of the original church, which had renovations and additions reflecting styles of different ages: Romanesque crypt, Gothic cloister, Baroque chapels. The highest of the three spires is, at close to 100 metres, the second-highest in the country. The church is next to Bishop Zdík's Palace (also called the Přemyslid Palace), a Romanesque building constructed after 1141 by bishop Henry Zdík. The principal secular building is the town hall (radnice), completed in the 15th century. It is flanked on one side by a gothic chapel, now adapted and operated as the Olomouc Museum of Art. It has a tower 76 metres high, adorned with an impressive astronomical clock in an uncommon ‘Socialist Realist’ style. (The original fifteenth century clock was destroyed at the end of World War II but it was reconstructed in 1947–1955 by Karel Svolinský who used the government-approved style of the time, with proletarians featured rather than saints.)
