There is a small metal
Building close to the original depot that is being used for tickets and it’s always busy.! Get your tickets online if you can! We did use the ticket agent but she didn’t understand that we wanted a family ticket. Hopefully it will be better when the renovations are over!

This is the kinda Railroad Station which other Railroad Stations get jealous about. It's a prime example of the German architecture of Gdansk and is exceptionally well preserved and taken care of. The inner working of the building are know to be quite chaotic, though after renovations that will hopefully be rectified somewhat. It's the first building I see when arriving and the last building I pass while leaving by train or bus.

The station from the outside is really beautiful. This train station in Gdansk, build in the so-called. "Gdansk Renaissance" style , is one of the most recognizable buildings in the city. For the first time the train left the Gdansk station in 1852. The station received a facade of red brick and white sandstone. The station was set on fire in March 1945, all rooms and structures suffered. To this day, this station plays a key role in the functioning of the city because all tram, bus and rail connections meet here.

The good? The building itself is very impressive, centrally located and we'll served with transport links.
The bad? All of the main buildings were shut for refurbishments and the information available was confusing and annoying.
The ugly? If you travel with the wrong ticket (and it is easily done), expect no mercy from the conductors at al who gleefully crucify any lost foreign tourists.

NB. If you can get your phone to work in Gdansk, use Uber taxis rather than the overcrowded buses and the slow/erratic trams. Buy SKM local train tickets from the kiosk on platform four. Make sure to double check what you are told and what you are given at the ad hoc ticket office in the prefab next to KFC. They have a palpable disregard for customers in general and foreigners in particular.

50 minutes in a que. Information which should work till 9pm closed already at 7.
Huge city, lots of tourists and TWO desks open.
Not mentioning that return travel by train (3 persons) from Leba to Gdańsk costed four times more than by car and lasted twice more time. Very encouraging to take care about environment.
Last time I used public transport in Poland- stressful and dreadful experience.

This station serves 2 main train operators : PKP Intercity and SKM , which can be confusing. PKP is accommodated in the main building , with ticket machines that also have English instructions, and service counters where the attendants speak enough English to get by. If you need the SKM service ( i.e. to visit Sopot where there is a good beach and the longest wooden pier in Europe , and maybe stop off at Oliwa on the way to visit the lovely park ) , then ignore the main entrance, walk towards the KFC at the far end of the station and turn left where you see the platforms . There is a small entrance that takes you into the SKM ticket office where we found all attendants spoke good English. Sopot / Oliwa service runs from platform 3 .

We had our poland trip and our first stop was Gdansk. This central station has nice architecture. However, you need to go outside the building to reach the train platforms.
Be cautious with your things when you ride through platform 1. We had unfortunate event as someone pickpocketed us. There was no CCTV on that platform. Hope the management will install CCTV.

Very low tech, dirty, run-down station. next to no info boards, hard to tell where to go, found correct platform but only clue to which track train would arrive on was on a sheet of paper in a cabinet. Lots of dodgy characters hanging about looking for vulnerable tourists to scam or pickpocket so stay vigilant. Not a pleasant place to spend any length of time. At least the police were quite visible doing foot patrols so that's one small positive.

Did you know you can get the train from Gdansk to Sopot for under 4PLN ie about £1? It's really worth a trip too. The station wasn't too hard to navigate - despite a lot of it being underground, and the ticket bureau told us in English which platforrm to go to.

Stunning building but as my visit wasn't just to admire it's beauty I have to lower the rating. Not an easy place to find your train, platform or time if you don't speak Polish. It didn't help that it was very quiet too almost nobody to ask for assistance.
