Slezskoostravský Hrad was built in the the second half of the thirteenth century to protect the boundaries of Opava and Krakow. However, after the boundaries were reconquered in the year 1327, the castle lost its importance and was abandoned. Now the castle has been restored from its depleted state and is open to the visitors. Slezskoostravský Hrad is also used for some major concerts and events. If you are in the city, ensure that you do visit the castle for it is a tell tale of the royal past of the city.
