Ostrava's main train station stands to the west of the city, beyond the Odra River and the D1 motorway in the Svinov residential district. It's an area of suburban tower block apartments but the location makes it very convenient if you hire a car. That's because it's easy to get straight onto the important D1 trunk road that leads from Katowice to Brno. Similarly it's easy to drive into the city centre from the rail station using Route 11 to cross the river and the Rezavka Park. Svinov Station itself is a well-equipped facility, with restaurants, shops, money exchange, luggage lockers and car parking.
If you pick up a hire car at the rail station you'll find that Ostrava lives up to its reputation as an industrial city. There's plenty of evidence of its history as a coal and steel centre. Yet much of that heritage has now become a visitor attraction rather than a deterrent. Ostrava is home to one of the world's largest mining museums and an impressive restored steel production centre is also open to visitors. Elsewhere you'll find the grand old Masaryk Square and the Old Town Hall Museum is also located here. The tower at the New City Hall nearby overlooks the whole city, making it a great place to visit – just remember your camera.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
