Moravian-Silesian Regions

Part of the sprawling former steelworks in the Vítkovice district of Ostrava. The steel making is long finished here and it exists now as a tourist attraction and testament to the city’s industrial heritage.

Silesia is an area which straddles the Polish and Czech border, the bulk of the region is in Poland. Moravian-Silesia is an area of sharp contrasts as it contains both beautiful protected green space such as the Moravici river valley as well as the city of Ostrava and its surrounding areas which were heavily industrialized under Socialism and still bear the scars today.
