Castle... What Castle??

Don't waste your time. Go to a real castle. Hours are funky, information is scarce, and frankly it wasn't worth the short drive to get there from the city.

Rather small castle is situated not far from the city center. It is one of the oldest building in Ostrava and is therefore highly recommended to history lovers plus it has been reconstructed and now looks quite alright. If You cannot travel and You are in Ostrava, go and see it. Otherwise there are tons of more interesting places in... More

Easy to get to from city centre. Interesting example of Moravian-Silesian castle. Small, easy to explore.

It costs 80 CZK to get into the castle. There really is not much to see on the inside. I was expecting more. This is not worth your time and money. Maybe it is better during special events.

They did not have many visitors during Autumn and the place looks rather dull. It might be a nice place for kids, but other than that, there's nothing much to do at this site.

It was nice from outside, but we didn´t go in, as I read in advance this was waste of time and money. So it looked like. Nothing special in offer.

Nice place, although it seems to be more commercial focused, than historical. Looks like they organize parties, concerts, weddings there. Maybe therefore they have money and the castle is in a good shape. Still worth visiting! Make sure to take your kids to the dungeon, they will love it!

I was lucky enough to be here for the Easter festival. There were a bunch of stalls selling all kinds of crafts and food and drink. The apple cider was particularly good. The food was also pretty good. There was a small stage with dancing and bands playing. The music was very traditional, the castle itself is both old and... More

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. With all the charm and historical pertinance of a refrectory Calvary franchicise found in the UK , this wedding venue offered... More
