In the webcam that opens in front of you, you can clearly see the roundabout in the small Czech town of Havířov, Ostrava metropolitan area. You can also enjoy a live view of the city from the online camera, located high enough to show the panorama of Havířov.
The place, where the live broadcast is conducted from, was created in 1955 as a residence for workers of coal mines, located nearby. Despite this, Havířov in the online camera is considered an environmentally friendly settlement with a high living standards.
The young city, which road is shown in the webcam, does not have important historical attractions, therefore, to attract tourists, the local authorities conceived the annual florists’ festival – “Havířov in flowers”. During this holiday, residents of nearby settlements as well as guests from other countries come here.
If we talk about the sights of Havířov, whose panorama is visible online, it is worth mentioning “Sorela” city center built up during the time of social realism. The architects working on creating the look of this area focused on the Renaissance, for this reason many buildings were built in the Neo-Renaissance style.
Another interesting attraction of the city, which can be seen in live stream camera, is the “Castle Hotel”, a villa, built on the site of an old fortress erected in the 15th century. Later, the fortress was rebuilt into a baroque castle, and after the fire of 1823, it was reconstructed in the Empire style. Currently, this building houses a luxury hotel with an expensive restaurant and a small concert hall.
At the entrance to Havířov, which roundabout you can see in the live camera, there is a beautiful St. Anna Church of 19th century with octagonal bell tower.
