The exhibition whose name symbolizes Ostrava’s journey from the prehistoric times up to the present was organized as part of the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of the first written mention of Ostrava. The four main panels of the exhibition present visitors with the history of the city in the Prehistory, Middle Ages and in the 19th and 20th century.

The panel on the city district Martinov highlights symbols of the originally mostly agricultural municipality: an urbarium, a brick chapel with a bell tower, an old school or a former meat processing plant. It also reminds us of the history of the local volunteer fire brigade and of an important native, pilot Col. Adolf Musálek, a member of the exile resistance during World War II.

The opening of the exhibition will take place at the Municipal District Office of Martinov on 1 November at 3 pm.

The exhibition will be open to the public on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 pm to 5 pm.
