Otrokovice is a town in the Zlín Region, Czech Republic. It is located in a hilly country town centrally located in a region called Moravia and is located on the Morava river.
The town was a significantly connected with the Bata company which owned multiple local industries including the large shoe factory that created its initial wealth.
Today it still has a clearly industrial look, though many of the more run down areas are being steadily improved. Otrokovice and Zlin have expanded so that there is only 1km between the built up areas.
The town lacks a clear center, instead having a scattering of shops and other businesses across several areas.
In 2014, a large kaufland store opened towards the South of the town. This area has turned into a commercial center including a pet shop, toy shop and a large electrical retailer.
A larger commercial, half way to Zlin, contains a much greater range of stores including a Tesco Superstore
