Ostrava

Hi, here are some pictures and informations about Ostrava.

Ostrava is the third largest city in the Czech Republic (population 312.000) and the largest urban area at the meeting point of three countries: the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia. The city has a rather special position within the Czech Republic. In previous decades, it used to be known as the steel heart" of the republic: the city was perceived as inhospitable, dirty, and full of rude and hard working people. But this has not always been the case: over the course of Ostrava's history, it has also been a commercial centre and an important transport hub.
Over the centuries, Ostrava gradually grew into a cosmopolitan trading and cultural centre.

Pictures are not mine, they are from webs: www.ostravaci.cz and www.ostrava-foto.cz.

Great photos, thank you for sharing! I think it's the first thread introducing this city on SSC and it's doing really great job. Ostrava is definitely not the most beautiful city in Czech Rep, but I like it's industrial feeling and general character. It's the city with great potencial and many opportunities for modern architecture to be built.

And what about Poruba? It would be interesting to show few photos of this district as well.

You're welcome kokpit. And what about Poruba? I love it, because it's my home neighbourhood. Main part of Poruba (neighbourhood in Ostrava) was built in the fifties in style of socialst realism. Most pictures are from web http://www.ostrava-foto.cz again.
























The old part of Poruba with church and manor house:

Most interesting. Quite like the 1950's housing estate. Also, is the Bata/C&A building from the 1920's/30's? Thanks.

Yes, this functionalist department store is dating from 1931.

I think Ostrava is the most underrated Czech city.

I am so sorry, but what's the human height average in Czecky? Is it 5'3? I'm taking my calculations from this photos.

Czech Republic, not Czecky (or Česko, Česká republika in Czech)
...very interesting that you guess human height from a photo. I don't know how to covert the American unit, but I'm, eg, 185cm high as most of boys in my age. Also, I know many people who have nearly 2meters.

185 is 5.9". But, i'm talking about people of age. Young people are always taller than the average.
