2. Landek Park
It’s fitting that Ostrava should boast the Czech Republic’s premier mining attraction, because people have been making use of the mineral deposits in Landek Park since time immemorial. Landek Park puts you right in the boots of a miner, to experience the good and not so good sides of industrialised mining in Ostrava over the last two centuries. Browsing the museum you’ll get to know about the history of mining rescue, and enter a mining cage for a simulated descent into a tunnel where you’ll be immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of a colliery in full effect.
