The castle was summer residence of T. G. Masaryk now abandoned … and probably on sale. [Location]
Roughly after 10 years I have visited Vitkovice again. It is not abandoned and rusted steel factory only anymore (I’ll try to find the pics from that first visit to compare later this week), but a living place with galleries, expositions, tours, concerts and more. This time we went with kids to Science and Technology center Ostrava. It is as the place suggests and unlike other similar places (such as Technorama in Winterthur) dedicated to explain steel production and the products made from it such as cars, trains, planes, ships, etc. On the other hand the similarity with other science centers is the kids love it – spent half a day over there. There are two more science and technology options for poor weather days with kids: IQ Park in Liberec and Techmania in Plzen.
