Uzunköprü railway station (Turkish: Uzunköprü garı) is a railway station on the Istanbul-Pythio railway. Located just north of Uzunköprü, the station is in the village of Demirtaş along the D.550 state highway. It is the last serviceable station on the railway before it crosses over into Greece. TCDD Taşımacılık operates a daily regional train to Istanbul from Uzunköprü and prior to the Greek debt crisis, the Friendship Express, running from Istanbul to Thessaloniki, also stopped at the station, until service was indefinitely suspended in February 2011.

Uzunköprü station was opened on 4 April 1873 by the Oriental Railway as part of their main line from Istanbul to Sofia.[1]
