Budapest is a city of outstanding beauty, with remarkable architecture, and important tourist landmarks, well advertised in travel brochures, and guides of all kinds. Besides its over-mediatized baths and spas, music festivals, cuisine, and cultural events, Budapest offers visitors a wealth of other attractions, not many people know about. Although the city is not seen as a Mecca for adrenaline junkies, Budapest does offer a lot to those who enjoy more „extreme“ activities.

UPDATE: Now a Private Label Hotels group property, Mamaison Business & Conference Hotel Ostrava changed its name back to Imperial Hotel Ostrava in 2015, to reflect the long history and tradition of the hotel. While it no longer operates under the Mamaison brand, the hotel remains in the CPI Hotels family, which includes Mamaison Hotels & Residences hotels, four-star Clarion congress hotels, Spa & Kur Hotels, Buddha-Bar Hotel Prague, three-star Fortuna hotels, and the Private Label Hotels group.

Ostrava is not the usual candidate for „active travels.“ In fact, the second largest urban agglomeration after Prague in the Czech Republic is more known as a laid back family retreat, or is known for lively nightlife.

Beyond its superb professional golf courses, Ostrava has all the conditions for year-round active holidays.

Below, you will find a few excellent recommendations for our guests at Mamaison Business & Conference Hotel Imperial Ostrava, but also for any other city visitors, interested in discovering the active side of Ostrava without the traditional travel guides.
