My boyfriend and I are planning to live somewhere in central or eastern Europe later this year, and as of right now we are leaning towards Olomouc after considering several options and doing research....mostly because we want to be in an affordable and attractive mid-sized city, that is not overly homophobic as we are a gay couple.
Would you guys recommend Olomouc? Or another Czech city (besides prague due to the size/affordability factor), or any other mid-sized central/eastern European city for that matter?
Do enough people speak English that we'd be able to communicate?
Thank you SO much! All comments/recommendations would be very appreciated.
I'll travel from Vienna to Wroclaw by car. Are the highways in Czech Republic and Poland subject to charge?
In case of affirmation: Will I be able to pay on location or will I need some kind of vignette or hardware? Do I need foreihn currency or will they take EURO too? Or is it possible to pay with credit card?
Thanx in advance!
Can someone recommend a good hotel/pension in Olomouc near the main square? hopefully100 or right around there. does public transport run from the train/bus station into the late night? thanks:)
I'm wondering how long does it take to travel from Vienna to Olomouc?
Is it advisable to take the train or to coach there?
Thank you! :)
Have a great day!
I am spending two nights in Olomouc shortly. I woundered if anybody had any suggestions for must see sites, and any friendly bars, nightclubs, etc.
I am planning to go from Prague to Olomouc and from there to Ruzomberok (Slovakia).
Does anybody know how long does it take to go by train from Prague to Olomouc? And by car?
Is it possible to go from Olomouc to Ruzomberok by train or bus? How long does it take? And by car?
If the trips do not take very long, I intended to do it in one day (trip from Prague + visit to Olomouc + trip to sleep in Ruzomberok). Is it a good idea or is it worth to have a longer visit to Olomouc and sleep there?
Travelling to Krakow, and want to stop off in Olomouc for the night. What are the rail connections to get there? I looked in "raileurope.com" and it requires the change stations which I don't know. Thanks.
Can you tell me the address of the Palacky University dormitory / hostel in Olomouc and how to get there from the main train station?
