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.

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

Wonderful Art Deco city hall, fantastic 360 degree views from the highest point in the city and an unbelievably informative and friendly guide, who refused to accept a tip - all for just CZK30 per person

A nice place to visit, big open yard, high tower. You can go up with elevator. Excellent view especially with open weather. Nice souvenir shop inside. Normal ticket price.

One of the best views over the city - and I know a lot of them :) Other great views are: Ema slag heap (path begins close to the crossroads of Na Najmanske and Příjezdná street) and the blast furnace No. 1 in Vitkovice Dolní oblast. If you would like to have some photos of the city from above, these... More
