Slezskoostravsky Castle is a revived memorial of the ancient history of the city of Ostrava. The founding of the castle by the Counts Piastovec has been dated to the second half of the 13th century. In 1640 the castle was rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau. It was damaged during the Thirty Years War, during the fire in 1872, and in the 20th century by undermining during the mining of black coal.
