ABSTRACT
Olomouc has been a significant centre of erudition and culture since the Middle Ages. The history of the Olomouc University starts in 1566 with the establishment of a Jesuit college, which received the same rights as other European universities in 1573. This second oldest university (after Charles University) in the Czech Republic not only influenced Moravia and Silesia, but many times its influence reached as far as Austria, Germany, Poland, East Europe, and Scandinavia. The University is connected with the names of many excellent scientists, e.g. Jakub Kresa (‘Euclid of the West’) and the founder of genetics, Gregor Mendel.
