Long Description:
Planetárium Ostrava bylo otevreno v roce 1980 jako soucást Bánské mericské základny, v roce 2000 prejmenováno na Hvezdárnu a Planetárium Johanna Palisy a po rozsáhlé rekonstrukci získalo v roce 2015 svuj soucasný název.
Hvezdárna je místem, kde se pozemštané mohou „dotknout“ vesmíru. Prijdte se podívat na stríbritý Mesíc, bourlivé planety nebo tajemné mlhoviny a galaxie!
Zacátky verejných pozorování zjistíte v aktuálním programu. Doba verejného pozorování závisí na casu západu Slunce, který se v prubehu roku mení.

The Planetarium of Ostrava was opened in 1980 as a part of the Banská Mericka base, in 2000 it was renamed to the Johann Palisade Observatory and Planetarium, and after its extensive reconstruction it acquired its current name in 2015.
The Observatory is a place where Earthlings can "touch" the universe. Come and see the silvery moon, stormy planet or mysterious nebula and galaxy!
The beginnings of public observations can be found in the current program. The time of public observation depends on the sunset time that changes over the course of the year.
