The travelling exhibition called From the Venus of Petřkovice to the Dolní Vítkovice Area, which was organized by the Ostrava City Archives as part of the celebrations of the 750th anniversary of the first written mention of Ostrava, has visited all 23 Ostrava’s city districts except for two – Třebovice and the city district of Radvanice and Bartovice.
As always, 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 fifth panel is dedicated to the city district where the exhibition currently is.
The panel on the city district of Radvanice and Bartovice presents an overview of the history of these formerly independent municipalities, namely from the times of them being small farmer villages to a recent past, when important industrial companies and non-extractive mining organizations were founded there. It also remembers local historic religious and social events and milestones in the political developments.
The opening of the exhibition will take place in the Culture House in Bartovice on 4 December at 4 pm. The exhibition will be open to the public on weekdays from 9 am to 6 pm until 31 December.
The panel on the city district of Třebovice remembers, among others, the Stonawský family, which was prominent in the field of art and its members include writer Marie Stona and artist Helena Scholzová-Železná, historical buildings, for example the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary or the now demolished stately home in Třebovice, and one of the current prominent features of the city district, the Třebovice Power Plant.
The opening of the exhibition will take place in the Třebovice Town Hall on 5 December at 2:30 pm. The exhibition will be open to the public on weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm until 29 December.
