Cable car route

Ostrava plans to build a cable car route linking the city centre with the most visited tourist destinations (Lower Vítkovice and Landek Park – up to 1.3 million visitors per year). A feasibility study has shown that the project is viable and can proceed to the next stage. In view of the cost, the cable car will not be part of the public transport network, but it will be linked to it. The journey between the Lower Vítkovice industrial heritage site (the fourth most visited tourist destination in the country) and the zoo will take just 11½ minutes. The City is currently seeking an investor for PPP (public-private partnership) funding. The cable car will help to reduce car traffic in the city centre.
