Sandwiched between Slovakia and Poland, Ostrava has the title of 'steel heart of the republic' due to its history and the industrial look and feel of the city. The city is known for its history in steel as well as several underground coal mines, which have all been shut down as recently as of 1989. Car hire in Ostrava allows you to reach the edges of the city and head to a few of the parks just inside the city limits, a great option for a day out of the city buzz.
During your time in Ostrava, you have to make time to visit the New City Hall Viewing Tower, with fantastic panoramic views of the city. On a clear day you may even be able to see the mountain ranges in the distance. Hiring a car in Ostrava allows you to travel out to these ranges, the Jeseníky Mountains have well marked paths for both cyclists and hikers and it is just two hours' drive out of the city. The Ostrava Zoo has been part of the city's main attractions since 1949, and has since expanded to over 230 species of animals. Rent a car in Ostrava and stop by the zoo, before heading out to explore.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
