Rzeszów Główny (Polish for Rzeszów Main station) is the most important station of the southeastern Polish city of Rzeszów, and the biggest of the Subcarpathian Voivodeship. According to the classification of passenger stations in Poland, it belongs to Class B.

The first station in Rzeszów was built in 1858 on the newly constructed line from Kraków to Lwów. In subsequent years, Rzeszów became an important railway junction, with additional connections to Jasło (southbound), and Tarnobrzeg's district of Ocice (northbound). During World War I, the station was destroyed by the retreating Russian Imperial troops. Rebuilt in the interbellum, it was destroyed again in 1944 by the Wehrmacht. The current complex was built after 1945.

The station offers connections to all major cities of Poland, also to Kiev and Lviv.
