ZOO in Ostrava enjoyed a new baby animal to its elephant family. It is a cute girl Indian elephant. To breed a baby animal is, however, very difficult. In the years 2006-2007 a botanical garden was added to the garden. There are also nature trail. The park is home to many animal species. There is also a resting and entertainment area for visitors. There is lots of greenery, children playgrounds, quizzes, puzzles, and also construction of new pavillions, and other future projects. Kids are amazed in "on the farm" zone. There they look at cows, or they feed yeanlings.

Ostrava is a place, where life is not simple and where the pollution is worse in EU. Despite that local people love this city and they do not miss any moment to fight for it. To Praguers are some Ostravians, and there are a lot of them, particularly allergic.
The Dolni Vitkovice area became in 2002 a national cultural sight and it is very popular among public. For the last two years it has became the fourth most visited tourist destination in the Czech Republic. Industrial compound with high furnaces had been used for 170 years to produce iron. On the tour you can learn about the production, function of individual construction, and have authentic experience. Today on the place where coke, iron ore, and limestone, there goes a glass elevator. Instead of material it will take up you.
Not so long ago, when a tourist got into Ostrava it was rather a coincidence. Mining and heavy industry was what the city lived of. One was afraid to roam in some district even during daylight. However, the city lives with culture today, there are many interesting sights, and growing number of young people who start new ambitious projects.
