This completely refurbished castle which is walking distance from the Forum Nova Karolina Mall in Ostrava is nice, but lacks in style and atmosphere that you see in the Czech Republic's other castles. We went with the kids while we were in Ostrava for the day and will probably take you no more than an hour. Personally, I would concentrate... More

The castle is after renovation. Before year 2000 it was a ruine. It is the reason, why many local exhibition take place here. We visited a journey with "Mystery person" Xaver, who told us a history of Ostrava in funny way. I am not sure if it is possible to get this visit in English.

The castle was poor with but had many seats. Very little English descriptions & can viewed in about 20mins. Easily accessed however.

People were nice and there are some nice store walls, but the place doesn't look like a castle, you can't tell that it has sunk (it has due to undermining) and it looks new.

I guess this castle, with the modernized reconstructions, is more a castle for shows then actual historic representation. I got lucky, when i went to visit, there was a medieval festival going on. A lot of buzz, a lot of stands offering local cheese and meats. Everyone was dressed up appropriately (except the tourist, of course) and they staged funny... More

A pleasant walk from the center of town over the river and through the woods (well, kind of) - it's not really a castle, but, rather, a museum in an old (restored?) building of sorts. Although unimpressive, it has a myriad of rooms with varying themes and history to keep one busy for an hour or so.

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

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.

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