Reconstruction of the Vitebsk railway station

Реконструкция Витебского вокзала

Vitebsky railway station in St. Petersburg is the oldest railway station in Russia. The first building was erected back in 1837 for the Tsarskoye Selo railway. The first passenger train departed from here on October 30 of the same year. The modern station building was built in 1904.

In the 2000s, in preparation for the celebration of the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg, the specialists of Lengiprotrans developed a project for the overhaul of the Vitebsk railway station.

During the reconstruction, work was carried out to recreate the historical image of the station and internal interiors: the windows of the facade and the dome were restored, the historical color of the building, stucco ornament and decor of the marble staircase were restored.

A canopy was erected between the Pushkinskaya metro station and the station building. The building was equipped with turnstiles for automatic ticket control.
