Romanesque Bishop’s Palace

  Václavské nám. 4, Olomouc      (+ 420) 585 51 41 11     more than a year ago

The Romanesque Bishop's Palace, formerly better known as the Přemyslid Palace, is located on the Wenceslas Hill. Its name is associated with Moravian Appanage Princes of the Přemyslid dynasty who had their castle here in the 11th century already. The preserved parts of the palace buildings however, come from the later era of the Bishop Jindřich Zdík. It was him who built next to the Cathedral Basilica a Bishop’s Palace in the first half of the 12th century. The palace belonged, as per the preserved stonework, to the very top of European Romanesque residential architecture.
