No heavy traffic in the City, nature, sports, shopping centres, nice people, a lot to be done with the family.
Global and Personal Connections + Citizens Co-creating Future
Ostrava is a great starting point for reaching out and travelling to many countries and cities. Geographically and historically, it is in the middle of the “Moravian Gate”, a valley trade route through which European merchandising has been safely transported for thousands of years. Situated close to the borders with Poland and Slovakia, and only 300 kilometres away from Prague (the Czech capital), and Vienna (the Austrian capital), a modern highway or express trains can be taken, as well as a number of flights, e.g. to London or Warsaw from where the whole globe can be reached. The City has diverted heavy traffic around the residential areas so that it still connects and yet do not disturb.
The Municipality is utilising its citizens’ ideas in co-creating the environment and developing city amenities. This participative approach has become an integral part in creating the strategic development plans and is much appreciated.
It is a big city, and still it feels comfortable and even cosy.
