History points towards a strong possibility that dinosaurs once roamed the area I live. However at no point have I felt the need to mug tourists off for access to my back garden with a promise of historical significance.

An interesting history of the Castle, exhibition of Christmas Nativity scene, many of the attractions for adults and children. A beautiful path across the River to more attractive locations (Miniuni, Marine Aquarium and the center of the city).

One of the most historic cultural monument of Ostrava City. Originally gothic castle was rebuilt into a renaissance chateau. Great place to visit esp. during COLOURS OF OSTRAVA (international music festival) or SUMMER SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL!!!
