Welcome to the website of the Archbishop’s Palace in Olomouc.
The official seat of Olomouc bishops and archbishops, a place where Emperor Franz Joseph I took over the throne and where Austrian emperor and Russian tsar met before the Battle of Austerlitz, and a building where Empress Maria Theresa and Pope John Paul II stayed – this is the Archbishop’s Palace in Olomouc. The building from the 17th century offers a guided tour with representative halls that have preserved rich decoration and furnishings from the Rococo, Empire, and Neo-Baroque periods.T
The building is accessible for the disabled. We offer a special haptic tour for visitors with some vision disorder – a booking is necessary for such a tour.
