Karvina Things to Do
The church of St. Peter of Alcantara has been llisted in the Book of Czech Records and Curiosities. The church is not unique not only in the CZ, but in Central Europe as a whole. The structure lean 6.8 degrees off the vertical because of coal mining, which started in the 19th century. That also caused, that in few dacades the ground under the church sank by unbelievable 37 meters.Related to:
The castle is located right beside the square, well maybe it even composes part of it. Architecture of it is rather untypical, maybe because it was estabilished for the industralization.

Karvina has very nic square with fountain and many pelargoniums :) I like especially the tower of townhall.
It is really an experience to visit this restaurant. Interior is very cousy, staff is polite and kind and the meals are delicious with reasonable prices. In addition, they serve special coffee Florian (that one which is being served in Florian café in Venezia). As we agreed with Jirka, it is our luck we don't live in Karvina, otherwise we would spend lots of time and lots of money here.

If you would like to visit Prague, the czech capital, and then travel to Karvina, the best way how to do that is travel by train. There is relatively fast train to Ostrava (3 hours 20 minutes), here you have to change a train and then it takes only about 30 minutes to Karvina. From the main railway station it's only 10 minutes to the city centre. Train is cheap (500 czech kroons = 18 euros).Related to:
