The university town of Olomouc

The town of Olomouc with its cultural, military and ecclesiastical tradition is now mainly a town of education. The twenty-three thousand university students, the large body of teachers and research workers, and hundreds of secondary school pupils in relation to the population of one hundred thousand make Olomouc a town of intellectual inspiration. You can meet the students everywhere, in the Central University Library, the Research Library, and the Municipal Library, in the wonderful parks below the medieval walls surrounding the historical town, in the theatre, museums, at concerts of the Moravian Philharmonic and in the art galleries. You will meet them in the halls of residence in the Envelope area, full of student activities, in sports grounds, and in boats on the river Morava.

This unique atmosphere attracts foreign students to Olomouc. They study full-time or attend special courses at the university. Olomouc is an ideal venue for international academic conferences; foreign visitors have already called the town a “Moravian Oxford”.
