Olomouc City hall and horologe


You are here:
The city hall building has four wings and a yard in the middle. A gothic chapel oriel protrudes from the southern façade. Numerous original arched rooms, including a ceremonial hall, remained well preserved inside.

The Olomouc horologe is planted in the northern façade of the city hall. Its contemporary version comes from the 1950s and it represents an interesting example of the propagandist role of the official art of the era. The mosaic decoration consist of medallions on the side walls of the alcove, displaying jobs typical for individual months, and a calendar with dates that were deemed important by the communist propaganda. Karel Svolinský, the designer, used folklore motifs in the top arch of the alcove.
