Enjoy your stay in Ostrava – Tourist attractions
To use the public transport of the City of Ostrava, you have to buy a ticket. Tickets are valid for a certain amount of time. There are several kinds:
The ticket is to be stamped as soon as you get on the vehicle (bus, tram or trolleybus). The ticket is valid for the given amount of time. The ticket remains valid even if you get off and change the line (the ticket is not to be stamped for the second time), but you must not exceed the time limit.
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.
There are many ticket vendor machines around Ostrava where tickets can be bought. Tickets can even be bought at the railway station (Ostrava–Main Station, Ostrava–Svinov) at the cash desk — this is handy if you arrive to Ostrava by train. Tickets are also sold at the tobacconist's.
