As a city with a long history, Olomouc has a lot to offer to its visitors. The advantage of the Bellis guesthouse lies in its location in the immediate vicinity of the center – the Lower and Upper square. On the Upper square there is located the Holy Trinity Column, a part of UNESCO world heritage. The Column is the dominating feature of the center, taking the visitors’ breaths away with its majesty. Close to the Column you will also find the famous town hall with astronomical clock. History building enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the Olomouc Castle, situated on Wenceslas Hill.In 1306, the last Přemyslovec, the Czech king Wenceslas III, was assassinated there. Being an important religious city, Olomouc offers its visitors many impressive religious monuments located not only within the city but also in its immediate vicinity. The most famous is probably the Minor Basilica of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, visited by Pope John Paul II in 1995.
