With a young population and a thriving arts and music scene, Ostrava is a fun and funky city that’s definitely worth a visit. The main square is a bustling hive of activity, surrounded by trendy bars and restaurants. The city is also home to the famous Stodolní Street, a nightlife hotspot that’s packed with bars, clubs and restaurants. If you’re looking for a bit of culture, the Ostrava National Theatre is well worth a visit. And if you’re feeling adventurous, head to the nearby Beskydy Mountains for some hiking and skiing.
