Why come to Olomouc?

It is the university together with a great number of other educational institutions that makes Olomouc the top student city in the Czech Republic – every fifth person in the city is a student! The city is home to 23,000 students from all over the world, who prove every single day that there is a reason why Olomouc is referred to as the Czech Oxford. Students are literally all over the place, which only highlights the friendly or even family-like atmosphere of the city, which you will fall in love with at first sight.

Olomouc is more than a thousand years old, and currently is the fifth largest city in the Czech Republic. It has been an important centre during different historical periods, was the capital of Moravia until The Thirty Years War, and has been an archbishop‘s seat since 1777. Thanks to its rich history, there is a wonderful display of historical memorials, ancient churches, fountains, and romantic streets accompanied by the gorgeous scenery of the city parks.

Students of the winter school can stay in the dormitories of Palacký University Olomouc, in rooms for two persons. Every two or three rooms share a bathroom and a toilet, and on each floor there is a kitchenette. Bed sheets are provided, and free WiFi is available in the dorms as well.
