You can zoom and move the map. On the map, you can find a highlighted position of Faculty of Science, Aula and Plenary lecture.
If you arrive by train at Ostrava–hlavní nádraží (Ostrava–Main Station), take any tram (no. 1, 2, 8) and go to the tram stop Důl Jindřich (4th tram stop, approx. 6 minutes). Go on to the crossing and turn left to the 30. dubna street. The faculty is the next building behind the "Red School" (a red building) on the right–hand side. The address is 30. dubna 22. You should read: "Ostravská univerzita, Přírodovědecká fakulta".
To get back to the Ostrava-Main Station, take the trams 1, 2, 8 as well. However, when taking the tram 8, make sure that the direction of travel is Hlavní nádraží – do not use 8 trams terminating at Přívoz, Hlučínská.
If you get off at the railway station Ostrava–Svinov, take the tram number 8 and go to the stop Důl Jindřich (11th tram stop, approx. 20 minutes). Go back to the crossing, turn left to the 30. dubna street and come to the faculty. To get back to the railway station Ostrava–Svinov take the tram number 8 as well.
To use the public transport of the City of Ostrava, you have to buy a ticket. However, paper tickets are no longer available, an electronic ticket is needed for travel.
How to buy an electronic ticket?
First option is to buy a ticket using your contactless debit/credit card directly inside the bus/tram/trolleybus at check-in terminals (a yellow machines are located close to the doors, menu can be switched into English). Just place your card on the green symbol on the machine and wait until the notice "You have a valid ticket" shows on the screen. If you get off the bus/tram/trolleybus, just place the card on the green symbol again to sign out.
This system is smart and it checks the length of travel and thus the proper price on its own. However, if you travel several times during the day, maximal price to pay in total is the price of a 24-hour ticket.
Second option is to buy a "credit ticket". It is actually a prepaid plastic card (100 CZK, 200 CZK,…) which can be bought at ticket machines (both cash and cards are accepted) or at Ostrava public transport information centres. You can also add credit to your card both in machines and offices. This ticket is then used in the same way as the contactless debit/credit card.
In both options, if you change the tram/bus/trolleybus, you have to place the card again when boarding.
- 10-minute ticket (CZK 16),
- 45-minute ticket (CZK 24),
- 24-hour ticket (CZK 100) – for one person,
- 24-hour ticket (CZK 200) – for group (max 5 person)
- 3-day ticket (CZK 220)
If you use the bus or trolleybus in the night (from 20:00 till 4:00), you can get on through the front door only and you have to show your ticket to the driver (or stamp it immediately). This does not apply to the tram.
