Ostrava

Ostrava, the third largest city in the Czech Republic, is located in the north-eastern corner of the Czech Republic, not far from the Slovak and Polish borders. Ostrava attracts tourists with its unique industrial sites, such as the lower area of Vítkovice, buildings from red non-rendered bricks in Vítkovice reminiscent of England, the view from the Ostrava town hall “Eiffel Tower”, cultural attractions such as the Colours of Ostrava pop music festival or chamber music organized in a non-traditional way in industrial spaces. One of the best-known centres of social life is the renowned Stodolní ulice, a street with dozens of restaurants, bars and other businesses.

It’s said that Ostrava has its own special culture and language, and the local gastronomic specialties are exotic even for people from other parts of the country. Within a half-hour from Ostrava’s centre, you'll find yourself in the natural surroundings of Lysá hora, the highest peak in the protected Beskydy region. The slight drop of the hills has made Beskydy into an ideal area for undemanding tourism. The paths lead through valleys and deep, mostly coniferous forests, around mountain brooks and large, silent dams. You’ll come across unique small wooden churches and old folk-architecture chapels (e.g. Bílá, Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, Hodslavice).

The trip to Ostrava can be combined with a tour of the historical Polish town of Krakow and a visit to the Auschwitz concentration camp.
