The 24-year-old arrives at Stade Velodrome ahead of the transfer deadline and links up with compatriot and former Slavia Prague team-mate Stephan Vachousek.
L'OM signed Vachousek two months ago and have returned to Slavia to snap up Skacel, who has penned a four-year contract.
Skacel is primarily a left-sided midfielder but can also operate as a full back and will be a useful addition to the l'OM ranks.
Coach Alain Perrin is confident Skacel will be a worthwhile recruit who will add zest to his midfield.
"I appreciate his striking of the ball," said Perrin. "He is a player who also shows much activity."
