“Right in the Center of City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

The location! Please research where you need to be and chances are you can almost walk there instead of the hassle of getting and overpaying for a taxi.

“Nice, though crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Novosibirsk Main Railway Station was rather recently remodeled, and now it looks very nice. Inside the building it is normally is very crowded, as it is very important transport hub -- Turksib, railway coming from the south, here joins with Transsib, TransSiberian Railway. In the summer time you'd better walk around. You may see a model of one of the first engines. If you are lucky, you'll see also plaque, saying that Lenin stopped for a couple hours at this station. The "very-much-soviet" style statues are welcoming and saying "good-bay" to travelers.

“More than a station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

I can't imagine someone going let's say from London to see Heathrow, so generally transportation facilities are not considered to be attractions, but this is a special case. Novosibirsk was born with the railway and it was always playing important role in the life of the city. So local residents were treating the railway with proper respect and attention.

They built a quit amazing railway station (it was built in 1930s, I was surprised to see how similar it was to the Grand Station in Los Angelos built around the same time), it's grand and spacious. Actually, it's one of the biggest stations in Russia. It was renovated and well maintained, so it's clean, comfortable and convenient.

The architecture is quite interesting, there are some stylish decorative elements and statues, there is a museum quality steam engine by the main building, so there are things to see.

Also, it's located in the central part of the city, open 24x7 and free to enter, so why not?
