Study in Karvina
A former industrial town in the beautiful valley of the Olše river and in the northern promontory of the Beskydy. It is situated 18 km to the east of Ostrava, the third biggest town in the Czech Republic. A part of the north border of Karviná is also the national border with Poland.
Even if at first sight it might not seem so, this industrial town is also rich with cultural and social history. The city has gone through a complicated and multi-dimensional development for more than seven centuries.
In the past, the significance of the town was predetermined by its strategic location on the commercial route leading from Hungary to the Baltic areas. This has made the city the commercial, economic and cultural centre of the entire local area. The discovery of coal in the second half of the 18th century was the factor, which significantly influenced the next development of the town. In spite of the fact that our town belongs to the areas with a dense concentration of industry, commercial and touristic part was strengthened in the last years.
Surroundings of Karvina provide a variety of places to enjoy your life, like the Beskydy and the Jeseníky Mountains with large forests, lakes Těrlicko and Žermanice for some summer fun, shopping centres in Ostrava, and the Stodolní street with more than 100 bars.
