The castle is located at Ostravice and Lučina rivers. Thanks to its location at the intersection of popular cycle paths, it is destined to become a sought-after excursion destination offering visitors not only rest, but also a glimpse into Ostrava’s history.
Silesian Ostrava Castle is the only at least partially preserved castle in the territory of the city of Ostrava . The first written mention comes from the end of the 13th century, when the castle served as a feudal fortress. In the 16th century, the castle was rebuilt into a Renaissance castle. which was later significantly affected by coal mining under Silesian Ostrava.
Since the 18th century, the castle has sunk by an unbelievable 16 meters as a result of mining activity and has been deteriorating unstoppably. It was only in 2004 that its extensive restoration was completed, thanks to which the castle is now open to the public not only for its exhibitions and tours, but also for holding cultural and social events.
