Ostravice is a village and a popular summer holiday resort in the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic under the Moravian-Silesian Beskids to which it serves as a gate.

The village was first mentioned in 1581. Initially it was lying only on the left bank of the Ostravice river, within Moravia. In 1951 the souther part of the village was split from Ostravice and joined with Staré Hamry municipality, whereas norther part of Staré Hamry was split from it and joined with Ostravice, and so both municipalities now lie on both banks of the Ostravice river, as opposed to the previous situation when they were lying concurrently on the opposite banks of the river.
