This station was taken and held by the Germans during most of the battle of Stalingrad. It gives you an idea of how incredibly close they were to the Volga river, which they were never able to reach. It is also a beautiful building, but I was most attracted by its significance during the battle. If you're interested in the... More

Arrived at the Volgograd railway station by train, large clean and spacious Soviet era railway station. Albeit with tight security. Nice fountain in front of station.

It is heavily guarded after the terrorist suicide attack here. Now the building is renovated, very modern and nice place to spend the few hours before your train.

Since it was through a terrorist attack a few years ago, the security to enter this place is like the one at an airport. I didn't go in all the way so I only got to see the entrance and it seems like a beautiful building inside. There is a beautiful fountain outside with statues of children playing.

This a very Soviet railway station but in a good way. The architecture is very Stalinist, but also in a good way. There aren't too many trains but if you are not familiar with the Russian train experience then it's worthwhile coming here just for the sight.

Love a great city station that has style and functionality. Building has that Soviet era feel to it. Airport security check literally as you go in. Nice and clean and nice fountain outside.

Security check from entrance as in airport. There was an explosion, but now very peaceful. We came here days ago by airplane, but we wanted to see this station. Ceiling is high and decorated with pictures of war. Chairs are comfortable to sit. Many ticket windows and ticket machines. Looks convenient station.

Very user friendly train station after a long train ride from Moscow. The station is also close to the city centre

The building from the outside is beautiful and worth a walk past. I did not go inside as I didn't have the time, plus there was a heavy security presence.

e arrived at the beautiful Volgagrad Station to be met by our guide. Unfortunately we didn't get to see inside as it was closed for repair following the bombing. The locals seem to have taken the whole thing very personally and were relieved the central ceiling mural had not been damaged. It will be well worth a visit when repaired.
