Olomouc CZ

Note: this entry is lifted from my old blog in friendster, also entitled flip-flops and backpack, a continuation of our trip to Czech Republic, March 2008.

(continuation from Kromeriz)

Next day we had been lucky this time with the weather. It was cold but at least sunny. Soon we are in OLOMOUC. We first visited the cathedral and monastery. The cathedral is called Wenzelsdom. In the city center on the main square is the Town Hall with Astronomical Clock. Also there is Pestsäule or world heritage monument. They built this monument to comemorate the victims of Plague in medieval ages in Europe.

So we hit the road again after Olomouc, to reach HRADECH KRALOVE. We found at the again beautiful main square a Italian Hotel to stay for a night. As we look around the city center, it was dawn already and the sky was really colorful behind the towers of the town. Of course we took the chance to take pictures. And our dinner we had in another good Czech restaurant, with Knödel of course finished that good day.
