Olomouc - Czech Republic

A few months ago I swapped again with Emerich. When his envelope arrived, I got a few more cards from Czech Republic.

 Saint Wenceslas Cathedral is a neo-gothic cathedral at Wenceslas square in Olomouc. 
The cathedral began in the Romanesque style and was consecrated in 1131. Extensive Gothic modifications were made in 13th and 14th century.
Czech king Wenceslaus III of Bohemia was murdered in a nearby house of the former dean of the cathedral on August 4, 1306. Wenceslaus III was the last of the male Přemyslid rulers of Bohemia.
Gothic revival changes, which included refacing the building, rebuilding the west front and the construction of the central tower, were made during 1883–1892. - in: wikipedia
