Getting to Olomouc from Vienna

by volarevolare

Hi there,

I'm wondering how long does it take to travel from Vienna to Olomouc?

Is it advisable to take the train or to coach there?

Thank you! :)

Have a great day!

smiles,
francesca

Hi Francesca,

there are no direct connections between Vienna and Olomouc. It will take you between 3 and 4 hours, depending on which route you take. The shortest is this one:

Eurocity train 70 Smetana leaving from Wien Sudbahnhof at 15:33, buy a ticket to Brno, main station. You will arrive at 17:05.
Then take a Student Agency bus (a nice big bright yellow bus) leaving at 17:30 from the station Brno, Grand hotel. The station is right in front of the railway station. The change will take no more than 10 minutes. The bus will be at Olomouc in one hour i.e. 18:30.

But if you are afraid of changing train for bus take this route:

Eurocity train 104 Sobieski leaving from Wien Sudbahnhof at 09:08, buy a ticket to Prerov. The train will arrive here at 11:16. Then buy a ticket for the local train Os3710 (end station at Ceska Trebova) to Olomouc. The train is leaving from Prerov at 11:44 and will arrive at Olomouc main station at 12:09.

I hope this will help you, have a safe travel.

Re: Getting to Olomouc from Vienna

by mtandon

Hello,

I was just reading this blog. I would be in a similar situation: Travelling from Vienna to Olomouc and after spending a day here, to PRAGUe.

I wasd wondering if it is required to make reservations on the bus for this time of the year? Also, how frequent are the buses? I have been trying to find a timetable online but haven't succeeded so far.

Thanks!

The Triton fountain on Námìstí Republiky

by globetrott

this excellent Triton Fountain is situated at Námìstí Republiky, opposite of the museum and it is a masterpiece of the sandstone-artist Wenzel Render, who also created quite a lot of the other famous fountains in the centre of Olomouc.
This type of Triton-fountain follows the one in Piazza Barberini in Rome, where dolphins are holding up the shell with a boy on top of it and this boy is holding a pair of "waterdogs" on chains.
In case that you want to search for it on your GPS :
Its Coordinates are : 49°35'46.21"N,17°15'27.11"E

Café

by swetluska about Mahler

Impression is very dependent on personnel. When you are lucky, you can spend there nice afternoon with friends, having delicious ice cream cups, pancakes, drinks or coffee. On the other hand, you can wait for your order almost half an hour and the waitress will look like you really, really bother her.... also the prices aren't the lowest ones.
Opened :
mo - sat: 08:00 - 22:00
sun: 09:00 - 24:00 Ice cream with hot rapsberries and whipped cream.

Six Baroque fountains of Olomouc.

by hundwalder

Six Baroque style fountains were crafted within the city of Olomouc during the period from 1680 through 1735. The fountains all depicted ancient Roman gods, military heroes, and mythological heroes. The fountains celebrated the transfer of regional governing power from the holy church to the secular leadership of the Habsburg empire.

Neptune fountain located in the main or lower square, is the oldest fountain. It was completed in 1683 by Michael Mandik. The fountain was originally built as a cistern to collect and store rain water for public use.

Hercules fountain located in the upper square, was also sculpted by Mandik, and constructed by master stonemason Vaclav Schuller. The fountain completed in 1687, is located directly in front of the main door of the rathaus ( city hall ). The statue of Hercules is shown in photo #3.

Tritons fountain located in Namesti Republicky ( Republic Square ), was completed by stonemason Vaclav Render in 1710. The principle statue is of a boy holding a mer-dog ( half dog and half fish ) on a leash.

Caeser fountain is shown in photo #1and photo #2 is a detailed view of the Caeser sculpture. The fountain completed in 1725, is also the work of Render, and of travelling sculptors including Jan Schauberger. The equestrian statue was inspired by the statue of Constantine in the Scala Regia of the Vatican. The fountain is located in upper square near the Rathaus.

Mercury fountain shown in photo #4, was completed in 1727 by Render and sculptor Filip Sattler. It is considered to be the best of the Baroque fountains. It is located on Kvetna Street. More of Sattler's work is found in the Corpus Christi chapel of the parish church and in the pilgramage church of Svaty Kopocek ( Holy Hill ).

Jupiter fountain located in lower square, was sculpted by Filip Sattler, and completed in 1735.

Sv Wenceslas cathedral.

by hundwalder

Sv Wenceslas cathedral is the largest place of worship in Olomouc. It is located near the northeast corner of old town, immediately inside of the best preserved section of the medieval city fortifications. Photo #4 shows the cathedral exterior, the Baroque presbytery, and the bell / guard tower.

Construction on the original Romanesque style church commenced in the year 1107. The great fire of 1265 destroyed all but a small part of the church. Rebuilding of the cathedral began soon after the fire. The basilica was built in the Gothic style having a large central nave, and two smaller naves perpendicular to the central one. The great interior Gothic arches were added in about 1320.

The masterfully crafted altar which is shown in photo #1, was completed about 650 years ago. The piece contains excellent wood relief carvings and bronze sculptures, and intricate engraving throughout. The marble was imported all the way from the Alps. Photo #2 shows more of the outstanding art work of the asp, including a cycle of medieval stained glass windows. Photo #3 shows a fascinating bronze panel.

The south bell tower with a height of 101 meters, is the tallest tower in Moravia. One of the cathedral bells weighs more than 8 metric tons. The adjoining early Baroque presbytery was started in 1616. The interior of the cathedral is open to the public most days.
