Welcome to Olomouc, one of the Czech Republic's best kept secrets.
There is an old anecdote about Olomouc from back in the day. It goes like this 'If someone climbed up to the top of the Town Hall and threw down a coin, it would either land on a head of a soldier, priest, student or a prostitute.' That's because these used to be the typical residents of the Haná region's metropolis.
Olomouc was once the capital city of Moravia and that's why today, it's the second most cultural and historical city in Czech Republic. It served as a mighty fortress to Moravia but more importantly, the first Moravian University (today's Palackeho University) was founded here around 440 years ago. The city has only bloomed since then. Let's just say, if you were to throw that coin from the Town Hall today (please don't), it would most definitely land on a student, even though we still have some monks kicking about too.
