Perfect view of the city and its suburs. Not more than 30 minutes needed for this attraction, but its worth it. Rather consider the timing as a nice weather is needed to get the chance to enjoy it. Unfortunately, the was no guide at the time we were there, but ha a nice time up there.

Definitely check out this one - you get a good feel for the city, including for how strikingly close to the city centre the former mines are, the artificial hills, and the rest of the surrounding land- and cityscape. There is a guide who comes up to the viewing platform every 30 minutes and answers any questions you may have.... More

Just to share this great experience with you as stand above the city and look in all directions. We were accompanied by a very nice young lady from the tourist information office who brought the scenery to life with not only identifying places but also giving us a potted history of the area and sights. It wasn't expensive but is... More

One of the must-see atraction in Ostrava (after Dolní oblast Vítkovice and Landek Coal Mine). Nice view over town, mountains (Beskydy) and industrial parts of city (Vítkovice, Coal Mines etc.) There is also a information center with highly-educated staff in City Hall.

Mountains on side, football stadium on another, river whispering right under you, the city buzzing around... it is adorable! Ostrava is different from other cities and this view is the start point for a visitor to start liking it :) Go for... More

We had great weather. The view is outstanding. There is a representative from the town hall up the top happy to answer any questions about the city or Czech in General. Great place to see the surrounding regions

The view from the top was outstanding even though the day I went it wasn't very clear. One of the staff came up to the top and told me about the different things to see. It was also cheap, it has the distinction of being the tallest town hall spire in the Czech Republic
