With just 90 Kc, you got to see the birdview of Ostrava. Get there at about 5pm, to catch the best sunset pictures.

Being at the top of the tower, you have a great view of the city, nearby towns, and Beskydy Mountains. Make sure you chose a clear day to go to the top of the tower. This is worth the money. When you are done, you can get on the pedestrian pathway and walk along the Ostravice River or go back... More

To anybody, who would like to visit Ostrava, view from the tower could be a key feature, which helps a lot in orientation and understanding Citi Patern (for example new river bank walkways, or excellent "industrial" technology park - Dolní oblast Vítkovic (http://www.dolnioblastvitkovice.cz/default/index/index/lang/en/site/56).

'Soviet era' is the term that best captures Ostrava's architecture in many places, including City Hall. (On the other hand, the Poruba neighborhood is an amazing and beautiful example of urban design with French influences.) The tower does give a good view of Ostrava and surroundings.

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
