The station from the front

Brno hlavní nádraží (translated from Czech as Brno main railway station and abbreviated Brno hl. n.) is the principal railway station in Brno, the largest city in the South Moravian Region and second largest in the Czech Republic. It is one of the oldest railway stations in the Czech Republic, having been in operation since 1839.

Routes[edit]

The international corridor in the Czech Republic, with main cities marked including Brno

Brno hlavní nádraží is an important station on the pan-international corridor passing through the country (Děčín - Prague - Pardubice - Brno - Břeclav), with international trains serving the station to and from Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Serbia and Croatia, including the Supercity Pendolino services from Prague to Vienna and Bratislava. It is also located on five other lines, three of which carry intercity trains:

Future plans[edit]

Currently Brno hlavní nádraží is at full capacity and therefore in need of expansion, however its location on the edge of the historic center of the city renders this physically impossible. The city council have made plans to build a new station in a remote location, an initiative which bore a cost of around 30 billion CZK. A referendum was held on this initiative, of which the turnout was too low to produce any binding decision.
