History
Rebuilt 1952

Odessa (Ukrainian: Одеса-Головна, Russian: Одесса-Главная) is the main train station in Odessa in southern Ukraine. It was built in the second half of the 19th century. It was damaged in 1944 during World War II and was rebuilt in 1952. It is situated in the city center of Odessa.

History[edit]

The first building of Odessa Railway Station was "П"-shaped. It's shorter part faced the station square, continuing the axis of Pushkinska Street. Trains entered the station between the longer side buildings. Between the buildings, platforms were placed and they ended in front of the shorter building. Such a terminus was formed because Odessa was, at that time, the end of the line next to the Black Sea.

  • Station building collapsed during World War II in 1944. It was restored in 1952 according to A.M. Chuprin's project (instead of the destroyed one during the fascist occupation of Odessa).
  • The new station building was remodeled in 2006.
