Plovdiv Central railway station (Bulgarian: Централна железопътна гара Пловдив, Tsentralna zhelezopatna gara Plovdiv) is the main railway station serving the city and municipality of Plovdiv, the second most populous city in Bulgaria.

Opened in the 1870s, the station forms part of the LyubimetsBelovo railway, which also links Sofia, capital city of Bulgaria, with Istanbul, the largest city of Turkey. There are 11 tracks in the station.

The baroque style station building, designed by the Italian architect professor Mariano Pernigoni, was completed in 1908.[1]
