LOWER VITKOVICE.

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 !!!.

Book by Richard Askwith. About Lata Brandisova. Only Woman Winner Of The Velka Pardubika Steeplechase.

Richard, Runner & Journalist. Wrote a Good Book on Running. Came to My Attention. With His Book on Czech Athlete, Emil Zatopek. A Very Fine Read. One Of My Favourites in Fact.

All My Years in The Czech Republic. Pardubice Was My Starting Point. Went for The Zlata Priba, Speedway. So Knew of the Horse Race.

Czechs Gather Around the TV Yearly. Everything Stops. To See the National Event. Like the Aintree Equivalent.

Richard Has Done Exhaustive Research. Really Liked the Extensive Notes & Tips for Further Reading. Would Recommend The Radetzky March By Joseph Roth.

Lata had a Ideal Childhood. From Nobility of a Kind. Though Not So Rich By Any Means. At The Time of The Hapsburg Empire. Living in The Country. Running around with Dogs & Horses.
