Gdańsk Oliwa railway station is a railway station serving the city of Gdańsk, in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland. The station opened in 1870 and is located on the Gdańsk–Stargard railway and the parallel Gdańsk Śródmieście–Rumia railway. The station is located in the Oliwa quarter of the city. The train services are operated by PKP, Przewozy Regionalne and SKM Tricity. Koleje Mazowieckie trains operate here during the summer.

General information[edit]

The station was built and opened in 1870 as part of a new railway line from Szczecin to Gdansk. This was the third established railway line in Gdansk (the line Gdańsk-Tczew and the railway line No. 249 to the Port). At the time Oliwa was an independent municipality and had about 3,000 inhabitants.[1] On 1 July 1926, Oliwa was incorporated in the administrative boundaries of the city and the station name was changed to Danzig Oliva.

On 2 January 1952 the SKM Trojmiasto suburban railway was opened, parallel to the existing line.[2]

The station features two island platforms, of which one functions as the regional commuter SKM stop and the other for long distance services. The platforms are accessible through an underpass of which connects all four platforms. The ticket offices are open all day long.

Modernisation[edit]

In late 2008 the platforms of SKM underwent a complete renovation. They restored the historic shelter and pavement, lifts and electronic information boards showing the next departures.

In June 2011 a major renovation of the main line platforms started, this was completed in 2014.
