Between climbing walls
Is climbing centre said to be only for heights and adrenaline lovers? It is not necessarily true. And in Ostrava they show how to do that. The space between climbing walls is actually suitable for organising various events such as movie projections, travelers´ lectures or corporate teambuilding activities. It is interesting that Tendon Hlubina climbing centre is situated in a former pit. The combination of the industrial heritage and climbing gives the place a touch of uniqueness.
Events in the sky
Blast furnace no. 1 forms a core part of Ostrava's Lower Vítkovice industrial heritage site, and this historical landmark has recently been converted by adding a spiral-shaped viewing tower to the top of the furnace. The distinctive tower, with a height of over 20 metres, has a café offering stunning panoramic views of Ostrava and the surrounding countryside. Known as the "Bolt Tower", the new structure was ceremonially opened by global sprinting star Usain Bolt when he appeared at Ostrava's Golden Spike international athletics meeting.
The tower was designed by the renowned Czech architect Josef Pleskot. Besides being a popular tourist attraction, it also offers a multifunctional space with a capacity of up to 50 people. With a breathtakingly unusual location and glass-walled rooms offering 360-degree panoramic views, this is the perfect venue for a truly unforgettable event.
