Railway station

Useful, looks fine and easy to find everything. If you will be there, no chance to loose your train or to go without souvenirs)

Samara Railway Station is super easy to get to with tons of mashrutkas and buses going by it. Located practically in the city center, it's readily accessible and easy to navigate to find your train even if you are a non-Russian speaker. It's not ideal if you need to use an elevator--they are not always working.

Samara's railway station is modern, spacious, has a medium-size restaurant and small shops for souvenirs inside. I enjoyed a coffee with a friend while waiting for my train. Is located in the central area and has beautiful construction design.

The building deserves a detour for its modern architecture, however you won't find any shopping center or nice cafe inside. It was a disappointment for me.

Beautiful, modern building in the heart of Samara. Alloy metal and glass. You can go upstairs to the observation deck and see the old city and the river at a glance.

It is convenient to travellers to wait for the train upstairs looking at yorr train arriving to the platform. As usual there are some negative points - security at the entrance is just distubing but not really working but causing... More

I lived in Samara and Syzran, and travelled back and forth once each week by train, for almost a year. The Samara Railway Station looks impressive from a distance, but in the winter, it is cold and imposing, like a big icicle sticking up from the ground. Syzran? For such a small city, the railway station has more character, a... More

I get it, locals are quite impressed with their shiny new railway station. Also not sure if, as it was claimed, it is the largest one in Europe, to me the one in Berlin seemed way larger. Unfortunately, if a railway station is a third best "Thing to do" in Samara here on Tripadvisor, it also silently tells you there's... More
