History[edit]

The station was opened on 3 September 1873, together with the rest of the Zvolen–Banská Bystrica section of the Vrútky–Zvolen railway. On 26 July 1884, the station became a through station, upon the inauguration of the Banská Bystrica–Brezno section of the Banská Bystrica–Červená Skala railway.

It was not until 19 December 1940 that the Banská Bystrica–Dolná Stubn section of the Vrútky–Zvolen railway was opened, thus completing the construction of that railway, and simultaneously transforming Banská Bystrica into a junction.
