One of the Ostrava's "must see" places. Not only you will see all city below, but if the weather is nice you will have a great opportunity to see all Beskydy mountains with it's peak Lysá Hora.

We were lucky to have a quite bright day for visiting of the tower. The one is easy accessible by 2 lifts, so no need to go up for those, who might have mobility issues. The views are splendid indeed. The directions and main points are described around, so this is easy to find out about the surroundings.

Went to Ostrava to see where my wife's father was born and raised. It is an old mining town that has clearly suffered in recent years. The city hall is very interesting. If you do go inside, you have to check out the old-timey elevators. Just trust me-it's insane. The viewing deck gives a view of the whole city. The... More

You can get a great view of the whole city of Ostrava from this tower. You can even see the mountains if the weather is nice. The fee is not very expensive and you can buy all sorts of souvenirs in the shop, some are really original. Great postcards too. There is an elevator so you don't have to worry... More

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.
