Christmas Markets and Advent in Ostrava
At the Christmas markets in Ostrava, you will find everything you need to tune in to the right Christmas note. And maybe a little more. Caress a real donkey in the nativity scene, admire the illuminated square from the Ferris wheel or romp on the Christmas ice rink under the open sky...
The Ostrava Christmas program is so rich that one square is not enough. In the city near the Polish border, you can enjoy entertainment on 5 stages throughout the center! The Main Stage with concerts, carol singing, and dulcimer music is situated right on the main square near the Christmas Ferris wheel and stalls with traditional goodies, without which Czech Christmas could simply not exist. The youngest visitors will especially enjoy the Children's Stage or the Christmas ice rink. The Art Stage on the wonderfully decorated square under the highest city hall tower in the Czech Republic (the view from its top will take your breath away!), or the Craft Stage with examples of traditional crafts will not be missed either.

What not to miss in Ostrava

You will experience a completely different, no less impressive atmosphere in the world-unique industrial area of ​​Dolní Vítkovice, where you will feel as if you appeared in a Jules Verne’s novel. Here you will be able to admire Christmas Ostrava from the top of the Bolt Tower lookout, which was placed on the top of a blast furnace. And what about going down a shaft with an elevator that used to transport miners? You will experience this in the mining museum in Landek Park.

And if the Christmas program at the Art Scene is not enough for you, go to the Gallery of Fine Art in Ostrava, or the Plato Gallery Ostrava placed in the impressive building of the former slaughterhouse.
