Lublin Railway Station in Lublin
Lublin Station is the most important railway station in Lublin. It is sometimes referred to as Lublin Glowny (Lublin Main), to distinguish it from two other (much smaller) stations located in Lublin. The main station building was opened in 1877, together with the Vistula River Railroad, which connected Warsaw with Kovel. At the time Lublin was in the Russian Empire as part of Congress Poland.
The station serves trains running on the three significant passenger carrying lines radiating from Lublin: the line to Warsaw, the line to Chelm and the border with Ukraine, and the line to Przeworsk. It is one of the busiest stations in eastern Poland, with over 50 train departures on a typical day. Following the recreation of Poland in 1918, the station building was reconstructed in the 1920s to give it a more Polish style,as the original building looked like a typical station of the Russian Empire. In recent years the station was completely refurbished. Because of this, it is now considered one of the best railway stations in Poland, according to Gazeta Wyborcza which gave it second place in the ranking of 23 most significant Polish railway stations.
