Ostrava situated on the border of Silesia and Moravia, is the third largest and second populous city of the Czech Republic. The city is halved by the river Ostrá to the Moravian Ostrava and the Silesian Ostrava. The town’s development was greatly helped by the steel industry, and the rich coal quarries although today only machine industry is significant in the city. If someone is first visiting Ostrava they cannot miss the Landek Park, which is the greatest and world famous mining museum of the Czech Republic. It is situated in the Anselm-mine which in itself is a great experience to go down to. You can marvel at the everyday life of miners, and the dangers of their profession. Even though Ostrava’s sights are greatly infused with the city’s industrial past, we can also find some historical monuments too. For example the Silesian Ostravian castle on the small hill at the meeting of the river Ostrá and the river Lucina. Up from its tower you can have a whole look on Ostrava’s town centre. In it you can find the New Town Hall which has the tallest lookout tower in the whole city: 73 metres tall. One cannot miss the Stodolní Street which is the heart of social life in Ostrava, you can find many restaurants and pubs here, and they also hold the annual summer festival here: the Colours of Ostrava festival. You can even get in the Stodolní Street by car, so it is greatly advised to travel around the town using our services in order to not miss anything from this lovely city.
