Ruse Central railway station (Bulgarian: Централна железопътна гара Русе, Tsentralna zhelezopatna gara Ruse) is the main station serving the city and municipality of Ruse, the fifth most populous city in Bulgaria. After the opening of the Danube Bridge in 1954, a new grand Stalinist Central Railway Station was envisioned for the city of Ruse. The new station opened in late 1955 temporarily becoming the biggest on the Balkan peninsula featuring three platforms, with four tracks and one passing track.

It is an important transport hub, with trains to Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, and Burgas domestically, as well as Bucharest and Istanbul internationally. The station serves as a border checkpoint for trains crossing into Romania, via the Danube Bridge.
