Vyborg railway station

Вокзал Выборг

The Vyborg railway station is located in the Leningrad Region and is part of the Oktyabrskaya Railway. The station building, built in 1913, was destroyed during the Great Patriotic War. In the 1950s Lengiprotrans took part in the restoration of the railway station and the railway station.

The new station was erected on the foundations of the previous structure. The premises were planned according to a symmetrical scheme. In the center, there is a two-story lobby and a wide staircase. Waiting rooms and a restaurant were located on the second floor.

The double-height vestibule, finished with artificial marble and covered with a finely cased vault with a span of 19 m, was an interesting architectural solution. The vault was made in the form of a thin-walled reinforced concrete structure suspended from metal trusses. The exterior of the building was executed in the popular Stalinist Empire style at that time. The station was commissioned in 1954, and at that time it was considered one of the most beautiful in Europe.
