Silesian Ostrava Castle is a castle in Ostrava, in the northeastern Czech Republic. It was originally built in the 1280s near the confluence of the Lučina and Ostravice rivers. The castle was built for military purposes due to its proximity to the Polish border.In 1534, the gothic castle was rebuilt into a renaissance chateau. It burned down in 1872 but was rebuilt. It was restored recently after many years of dilapidation, caused by coal mining under the castle. Today, the castle is one of the most important tourist attraction of the city.The castle held the Colours of Ostrava festival in 2007.

  • It is true that the castle was already in 1. the Republic of ruinou and the Communists got trashed altogether. It is true that in recent times the town has taken what could be the fix, fixed, zvelebilo, ... but it's current use is appalling. Exposure are rather a shame and embarrassment for Unreal money ($ 80 admission for nothing). Man, if you take your friends or colleagues, so even if they must apologize to the castle looks today, so basically the history of pdoobě Castle and know nothing. No nothing. No exposure to the history of the Castle, architecture, structural analyses, that would explain why today the layman sees what he sees. No exposed artifacts ... just bullshit and koniny, that have absolutely nothing to do with the Castle.

  • There is nothing much to see, therefore, the Castle often organizes events, but the markets were charged admission, come to me strange, it pays the seller, there is always a lot of people, that's why I don't like this attraction
