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.

Though with a feel of smaller stations still very interesting to look at, especially from the inside. Very interesting decorations and paintings worth having a stop to take a photo on your way to the town. Some of the parts were closed when we were there and we were ushered through an alternative exit.

This is where you catch the train to go back to Moscow or wherever you are going to. It has been completely rebuilt in Stalin's neo-classic style with the usual heroic statues and friezes depicting scenes in the Battle and the usual workers and peasants etc etc. But what do you expect ??? The fighting was so intense here, the... More

not very big,and nothing much for a train station. the place is a little dirty and not many seats, with bad ventilation. it isn't very tourist friendly too, especially with those who can't speak russian.

All that's best about the Soviet era. Where else would you have amazing ceiling paintings and statues in a small station? Make sure you visit, and take pictures when the security guards are looking the other way...

The Railway station is situated in the beautiful city center. But the building is quite ordinary for the railway stations in the big Russian cities.

I must say it will be one of the most iconic structure/attraction in Volgograd. Located just next to the alley of heroes. Check out the magnificent painting on the ceiling in the building which depicts the glory of socialism back in those soviet days. Kind of a busy spot as it serves as land transportation hub for the city. It... More
