The whole of downtown Olomouc is fabulous to see, but a highlight is definitely the baroque Holy Trinity Column located on Horní náměstí. Made to highlight the wealth of the city back in the early 18th century when it was built, the column is 35 meters tall and is elaborately decorated with religious statues by Moravian artist Ondrej Zahner. Its uniqueness extends to the fact that the style is called Olomouc baroque. UNESCO chose to designate the column a World Heritage site due to it being an excellent example of ‘central European Baroque artistic expression.’

This impressive structure dominates the main square in Olomouc and is arguably the most recognised attraction within the city. Not only is it listed on the Unesco World Heritage List, but it is also one of the biggest single baroque sculptures in Europe. You can’t help but be drawn towards it once you enter the square of Horni Namesti and it becomes an even more striking monument the closer you get.
