Zagreb Glavni kolodvor (Croatian for Zagreb main station[1]) is the main railway station in Zagreb.[2] Located 1 km south of the city's main square,[1] it is largest station in Croatia and the main hub of the Croatian Railways network.


An 1890 act of the Royal Hungarian Government authorised the building of the main station and maintenance shop in Zagreb.[3] Construction of the 186.5 metre long neoclassical style station building was overseen by Hungarian architect Ferenc Pfaff.[1] Sculptural works were undertaken by the Hungarian sculptor Vilim Marschenko.[3] The station opened on 1 July 1892.[3]

Reconstruction works were undertaken in 1986–87 (just before the 1987 Summer Universiade), and again in 2006.
