Ostrava usually does not appear in the lists of the most interesting places to visit in the Czech Republic . The city is located close to the southern border with Poland . Most people only pass through them on their way to the south or west of Europe. However, Ostrava can be liked.
First of all, it has a very industrial character . You will find out about it during a visit to the closed Vitkovice steelworks, where the Bolt Tower is located - one of the best vantage points in the city. Apart from that, Ostrava also has a nice old town . On its outskirts, the New Town Hall deserves attention, from whose tower you will be able to look at the city almost like a bird's eye view.
Ostrava will be a real treat for fans of industrial climates . You will also like it here if you like visiting places that are not crowded with tourists . Ostrava can also be a pretty good stopover , both for a short break and for an overnight stay.
