Silesian Ostrava Castle

Valuable historical monuments can be seen even in the industrial city of Ostrava. Visit Silesian Ostrava Castle, which stands on a small hill above the confluence of the Ostravice and Lučina in the southern part of Silesian Ostrava. The castle was built by a Těšín prince from the Piastovec family as a borderland fortress against the Czech state in the second half of the 13th century. It was converted during the Renaissance and the entrance gate with a tower dating back to the 16th century has been preserved until this very day. The complex recently underwent extensive renovation and is regularly brought to life by a range of cultural events. The castle cellars are home to an aquarium with freshwater fish, a museum of witches and torture exhibition. You can look out over the centre of Ostrava from the lookout tower on the top floor. Children will especially appreciate a scary night in the castle.

Ostrava

Coal, iron and steel changed the life of generations. There is no other Czech city that would reflect the technological development and industrial revolution the way Ostrava does. The industrial architecture with mining towers, furnaces and the skyline of the Vítkovice Ironworks is an unforgettable experience, seen both from the ground and the sky. However, there is still one thing that remains hidden: a huge underground city where thousands of men used to descend every day. The exceptional technical buildings are not national cultural monuments. It is not enough to just see Ostrava; it is best to experience it, for example, at one of the festivals.

Michal Mine in Ostrava-Michálkovice

If you are going to Ostrava and are interested in the industrial history of this city, you should not miss a tour of the former Michal coal mine in Ostrava-Michálkovice. The raw spaces look as if the miners have never left, as if they were still underground, working away and cutting coal. Today, this National Cultural Monument is included in the list of the UNESCO List of Monuments.
