    My wife and I may be moving to Ostrava, with our two kids, for me to play pro basketball. My family knows almost nothing about the Czech Republic, or Ostrava. Does anyone here have young kids living in Ostrava? Any advice or information is greatly appreciated...thanks

    I am Ostrava-born and had been living there for more than twenty years. I believe that i can answer some of your questions, although my answers might not be the most recent ones as i have been living outside the country for the past three years. However, i still return to Ostrava every now and then to see my family and friends! (my next visit there will be next month - so excited!!! :))
    I also have a three-year teaching experience in Ostrava as i am a qualified primary teacher. This might be useful for you as i can give you some insight into this area and 'kids in Ostrava' in general.

    I am sure you have done some search on Ostrava, however, here are some useful links for the city itself as well as for its surroundings: http://www.mmo.cz/ostrava/city.html , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostrava , http://www.ivebeenthere.co.uk/places/cz ... /index.jsp , http://www.world66.com/europe/czechrepublic/ostrava

    Take care and let me know how you get on! ;)
