For the Geo Quiz, we are looking for a city in Czech Republic. It is not the capital Prague. We are looking for a city in the eastern part of the country. This city is the historic capital of Moravia and was a big trading hub in Middle Ages. There is a story that Julius Caesar founded the original settlement though it is unlikely he ever set foot there. Still, the city began as a Roman military camp with the Julius' Hill. It is a city full of churches including a thousand-year-old cathedral. Olomouc is the answer to the Geo Quiz. For a city that goes back centuries, modern-day Olomouc is pretty trailblazing. It hosts a multimedia festival that recently commissioned an awe-inspiring bit of digital art. The World's Alex Gallafent reports.
