For a fun walking adventure tourists can work on finding the six fountains of Olomouc. These Baroque waterworks sit in six different locations within the city, each reflecting a different Roman god. Only one of the fountains has a different purpose, memorialising the city’s founder instead. Because the city centre is so big with a vibrant selection of things to do and activities to see, Olomouc apartments are the perfect solution when it comes to looking for a place to lodge. Staying in generic, impersonal hotel chains mean tourists will miss being able to immerse themselves in the daily thythm of Czech life which is best experienced by staying in one of the city neighbourhoods for a week or two.
Additionally, having a place with a kitchen provides flexibility and freedom, allowing visitors to also enjoy sampling local ingredients in the comfort of their own home. While a weekend stay may be a recommended duration of stay in some tourist guides, Olomouc is not really fully experienced unless a visitor stays for at least a week or two in Olomouc holiday rentals. Between the museums, shops, food, squares, and glorious summer weather, as well as the beauty of the surrounding Czech region, Olomouc holiday rentals for an extended stay are really the only good way to visit the city. Another wonderful place to immerse yourself fully in regional culture by sampling delicious local cuisine is Ardèche Holiday Cottages.
