Interesting, worth a short visit - very Baroque inside. If you are into this sort of thing go and visit - wonderful organ music if you get there at the right time or attend a service.

St. Michael’s Church itself is worth a visit. But being here after Christmas offered us a nice surprise: In the cloister on the right was a tremendous wooden manger on display. Lovely!

Located at virtually the highest point in the old town of Olomouc. It's plain outside but highly ornate inside. Currently (Oct 2017) under renovation, so access was a bit limited.

I was here all alone, and it was so peaceful. Than I discovered at the back of the church at the righthandside that you can also go into the cloister. Apparently you can also climb the tower, but have not found this entrance. Perhaps next...More

St. Michael's church is located on the highest point in the city center surrounded by te most pictoresque square. Legends say this used be a sacred place where the old Slavic settlers performed their rites. Once there check out not only the church but also...More

There was lots of interest us here and some of the sculptures in the church were exquisite - and I don't normally say that of religious sculptures. The bell tower is worth a visit - and read the history of the bells if possible. The...More

It's a beautifully decorated and lavish church. If you're here, it's worth at least a half hour of your time to look around. Careful on the staircase up to the belltower, it's quite tight.

The inside of this church is simply stunning. Baroque to the highest degree. I would have loved to here the organ but it was not being played today. Ah, to a different age!

After having a little trouble finding the entrance, i just got overwelmed. Inside the church there is so much detail in decoration you can look around forever. Without a guide we got to discover the Churrch, tower, chapel, well, and everything there free of charge....More

I love the location of this church and it's architecture. From Olomouc's main square walk up Michalska street to the Church, cute little street. Inside the church you can climb to the top near the bell and get a great view of Olomouc. This church...More
