The connection of Ostrava to the railway network was a significant milestone in the development of the city. The exhibition marks the 170th anniversary of this important event. It will be open to the public inside the Ostrava City Centre Railway Station from the beginning of May to April 2018. The exhibition presents the visitors with detailed historical data that have never been published before, shows interesting old drawings and photos, railway-related items, a model of a passenger train from the middle of the 19th century and other devices connected to this railway.
The city of Ostrava supported this project with a grant for supporting projects celebrating the 750th anniversary of the first written mention of Ostrava.
