Archbishop's Palace

Wurmova 9, 771 00 Olomouc / Show map

Since its inception and until today, the Archbishop's Palace has been the residence of the bishops of Olomouc and, since 1777, also of the archbishops. The ceremonial hall can be rented for ceremonial events.

The archbishop's residence is an important example of Baroque palace architecture in Moravia. The two-storey building with a richly decorated neo-baroque façade and three baroque portals is arranged around two enclosed courtyards. The interior of the palace has preserved a number of rooms with rich artistic decoration created gradually from the second half of the 17th century to the beginning of the 20th century.

Throughout its history, the Archbishop's Palace has witnessed a number of important events, such as the visit of Maria Theresa, the enthronement of Emperor Francis Joseph I, the conclusion of a peace treaty known as the "Olomouc Punctuation" and the visit of Pope John Paul II.
