Uzhhorod (Ukrainian: Ужгород) is the main railway station in Uzhhorod, Ukraine. It also is used as a port on the Slovakia–Ukraine border for freight transportation. The rail border checkpoint is part of the Chop customs.

The complex was opened to the public in October 2004. It is situated on Heorhiy Kirpa Square in Uzhhorod.

History[edit]

The former building of the Ungvar (Uzhhorod) Railway Station (renovated in 2004 and renamed as suburban railway station) was built in the early years of the 20th century. In the late 1970s, the Soviet Government decided to build a new station building for the 1980 Olympic Games, but the project was never completed.

In 2002, the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers decided to build a new modern bigger railway station complex. The works began in 2003. In October 2004 Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych and Uzhhorod city mayor Viktor Pohorelov opened the new station complex to the public.

The complex today[edit]

The suburban station serves trains to stations in the Transcarpathian Region. The central railway station serves departures and arrivals to and from:
