Olomouc is easy to reach by train, bus or car. Public playings of competition works will take place at the Palacký University Art Centre, just a few minutes' walk from Horní náměstí in Olomouc.

Transport by train and bus

The main train station in Olomouc is around 25 minutes by foot from the Art Centre. The trip from the bus station will take you 40 minutes on foot, but check which train station your bus stops at. RegioJet buses depart from the street Jeremenkova by the main train station.

Transport by car

There is a pedestrian zone in the centre of Olomouc, with parking permitted in the surrounding streets following payment at a parking machine, by SMS or through a web application. We recommend using public underground garages, which you can find on the streets Hanáckého pluku, Jeremenkova and Palackého. You can also park for free for the first four hours at Galerie Šantovka. Please check before arriving to see if your hotel has parking. You can find everything about parking in Olomouc on the website parkovani.olomouc.eu.
