I have been here today. Very nice experience and as almost everything in Ostrava...Super cheap. If you want to see a huge panorama of the City you should go ahead. I would recommend to look out for the weather because it is a lot better when it's sunny and clear.

We went to New City Hall viewing towar take a look on city landscape in July. Weather was really beautiful so we had great view! Also, wind on top of the tower has really cooling power. It does not cost much, so I see it as a well spend money.

If you want to have a great of Ostrava and its surroundings, this is the place to go. The ladies at the store/desk are very friendly and one even showed up on the platform to give some information on a few of the sites.

To find the way up to this go into building up the stairs and take the lift to tourist information on the sixth floor- once there the helpful staff will sell you a ticket (40 Czech k for seniors) and you take the next lift to the top. Views from the top are terrific and show what a green city... More

The view is great. Each of the 4 sides has a picture of the view with a legend (in Czech and English) naming what you are seeing. The visitor center and tower are open until 7pm. Martin, at the visitor info center below, was fantastic. His English is great and he was very generous with his time, explaining all the... More

It is well worth a quick stop at the town hall to see Ostrava from the top of this tower. On a clear day you can see miles and miles all the way to the Polish border. The cost is more than reasonable, only the equivalent of two Euros. Our major complaint was the employee who came up to "answer"... More

The viewing platform is 73m high and you get a wonderful 360° overview of the city. A mesh grid surrounds the platform, so it's a bit tricky to take pictures. it costs 80CZK to go up and it's worth it.

Average views on a cloudy day, albeit slightly better that Bolt Tower, with extremely helpful tourist office. Worth a visit here on your first day in Ostrava to make sure you don't miss any of the sights. Tourist office on 5th floor is well hidden, quiet but filled with very helpful, chatty and great English speaking staff to help you... More

Perfect way to get the overview of Ostrava from all directions. (Photos hare to take due to mesh protective wiring all around.)
