Planetárium Ostrava (former Johann Palisa Observatory and Planetarium) was founded in 1980 as a part of VŠB Tech University Ostrava, Czech Republic (former Czechoslovakia). The sky theater presents astronomical shows for pre-school and school children, students and general public. It is the only educational facility of its kind in the city of Ostrava and the whole Moravian-Silesian Region. During a complete renovation between 2012 and 2014, Planetárium Ostrava got a new projection system that includes both digital fulldome and opto-mechanical projectors. The first four educational fulldome shows were produced in 2013-2014.
