Kursky railway terminal (Russian: Ку́рский вокза́л, Kursky vokzal) also known as Moscow Kurskaya railway station (Russian: Москва́-Ку́рская, Moskva-Kurskaya) is one of the nine railway terminals in Moscow. It was built in 1896. There are currently plans to completely rebuild or refurbish the Kursky station.[1] Kursky Station, unlike most Moscow terminals, operates two almost opposite railroad directions from Moscow: one toward Kursk, Russia, after which the station is named, that stretches on into Ukraine, and another toward Nizhniy Novgorod, which is less used by long distance trains, mostly for the high-speed service to Nizhniy. Kursky is connected to the Lengradskiy Line from the other side, enabling long-distance trains from St. Petersburg to other cities to pass through Russia's capital. Because of its three directions, its adjacency to the city center, and its connection to three major metro lines, Kursky is one of Moscow's busiest railway stations.
