30-6-17. Pavel Kindly took Me By Car. To National Site of Industrial Heritage. Lower Vitkovice.
Sheffield, Rotherham Share Many Things in Common with Ostrava.

Both Had Big Steelworks & Coal Mining. Some People had the Wrong Impression of Dirt & Smog. Associated with the Two City,s. Now the Industry,s are Gone. Sheffield & Ostrava are Clean. Plus Transformed in to Exciting & Forward Thinking Places.

Lower Vitkovice Site was Founded By Olomouc Archbishop Rudolf.

You Can Soar Up in a Lift to the Top Of Vysoko Pec ( Blast Furnace ) NO 1. Where You can Listen to a Talk on Iron Making. Fantastic Views are Before You. Of the Ostrava City Landscape. Or Have a Coffee in the Bolt Tower cafe.

Ano, the One & Only Usain Bolt. The Jamaican Legendary Sprinter. Additional Storey Named After Him.

Looking Round the Industrial Area. It is Impossible to Take in the Huge Scale of the Place. It Just Blew Me Away !!!.

You Could Hire a Helicopter to Fly Over. Plus Take Fine Photos.

So Visiting the Czech Republic. Everybody Visits Praha. Rightly So.

Though I Think Ostrava Should Enter Your Plans. Do Not Overlook it. Lower Vitkovice Industrial Architecture. In My Opinion is a Must See Attraction !!!.


  1. I was there yesterday again and whole area is already fenced and cluttered with scaffolds and all kinds of people preparing for Colors of Ostrava...
