The Odessa railway station is not only a place to catch a train but also a place to visit to see how the average person travels. You will see a good mix of society here. It's fairly safe, but it's also best to be aware. There are a few pickpockets and con artists who hang out here to prey on... More

Looking at the photos of the outside - I was expecting a grand hall inside to match it ... But there isn't ... In fact there isn't much of an inside at all !

Like the train station in Lviv, the railway station in Odessa also features the Romanov type of architecture. I truly love the equal design of the structure of the Railway Station. Many taxi cars are here, the only problem that I've encountered was with the taxi, they definitely OVERCHARGE you, the tourist A LOT MORE than the other city(Luhansk, Poltava,... More

I've spent about 6 hours at this place waiting for my train from Odessa to Kharkov. I have a mixed opinion about it. It' s clean inside, not overcrowded, with nice chairs. At the same time fuss bathroom facilities are just horrible. There is a McDonald's restaurant right across the street, so if you are hungry it' s pretty much... More

While it isn't as big as the station in Kiev, it is a very good station. If you are an English speaker, you will have to hunt around and figure things out. I had to go to a second line to purchase a ticket from someone who understood English, but that is a minor thing. We are traveling to enjoy... More

If you travel by train and do not speak russian you need to go to the other side of the building. The building is in a U shape and you are looking for window 7 they speak english.

Impressive station and certainly worth a look even if you are not here to get a train. Toilets were fairly gross despite a charge. Reasonably good sitting area to wait for your train.

Good luck if you don't speak Russian or Ukrainian. No signage and long hopeless lines to get tickets - presuming you can figure out which line to stand in. Recommended for a true "Soviet' cliche.

If you are interested in architecture, try to visit this building. Yes, in fact its regular train station, but when you will think about it like about monument, it is really interesting. I highly recommended went at night to the platforms and than look back to the railway station – because of lighting and Ukraine flag at the top it... More

It is a rather safe station even if you arrive with the early morning train from Simferopol, (paid) guarded waiting room, clean toilets, café open, so all in all rather pleasant experience
