A short history of the railway network:
The railway line from Kravaře to Chuchelná was constructed as a part of a railway line from Opava to Ratiboř. In 1895 the railway line served as a connection between Prussia and Austria-Hungary. In February 1920, the Hlučín region joined the Czechoslovak Republic and the municipality Chuchelná became the last stop. The railway near the border remained closed after World War II. As a result, the most important railway line in the region has become Opava – Hlučín. Itʼs a former turning line from Kravaře to Hlučín. In addition, a new line Kravaře in Silesia to Chuchelná was added to the railway network.
Transportation company TQM Holdings Ltd., Connex Morava PLC. and a Public Transport Company Ostrava PLC secure bus transportation services in the region. The bus transportation services are a part of the integrated transportation network ODIS based on a common tariff, transportation terms and conditions, and they have common terms for creating transportation timetables.
