Lovely architecture

Super pretty, classical architecture. Other than being pretty, it's just your old run of the mill train station.

Arrived from Kiev on the night train the station is generally clean and tidy the left luggage office early in the morning is quite quiet, later in the day expect a large queue and allow time to leave or collect luggage, all of the announcements are in russian or Ukrainian not much help if you don't read cyrillic or understand...

Well, the downside- there's no free sitting/waiting area, and although the price is low, it's not air-conditioned properly enough for summer heat. And on-site eateries seem to ran out of food supplies in the evenings, so you can barely order anything from their menus late in a day. Otherwise it's quite good for a train station.

This is a good place to visit on the train as the train lines from all over Ukraine end up at this station, be aware of once you get off the train people will jump on you offering some where to live and taxis

Train, and decent restaurants are near to main autobus vokzal in Odessa. Easy to walk over to the other side of the trains stations to see the Trade Union buildings nearby where the Russian-backed separatist insurgency was stopped after the Maidan.

If you are not traveling by train to Odessa, you might want to do a quick walk through you will enjoy. It is not far from the city center and has some beautiful architecture.

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

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
