Białystok railway station is the most important railway station in the city of Białystok, Poland. It is sometimes referred to as Białystok Central (Białystok Centralny), to distinguish it from six other, much smaller, stations located in the city.
In recent years, the station was completely refurbished. Because of this, it is now considered one of the best railway stations in Poland. Gazeta Wyborcza gave it top place in the ranking of 23 most significant Polish railway stations in 2008 and 2012. The station provides connections to all the major cities of Poland, including Warsaw, Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Łódź Kaliska, Poznań, Wrocław, and Szczecin. There are also connections to Vilnius, Lithuania and to Grodno, Belarus.
