Kyiv-Passazhyrsky is a railway station in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev.Serving more than 170,000 passengers per day . Southern Station is a misnomer in virtually universal usage in Kiev, referring to a large entrance with ticket booths on the other side of the tracks from the Central Station building. The station complex thus provides long-distance and international services, and short-distance service for suburbs, minor city stations, and nearby regions.The Kiev Metro station Vokzalna is adjoining the complex, constituting the station's main intersection with city transport. The Kiev tram terminal Starovokzal'na is also adjacent via a passageway.History and architectureThe old Kiev railroad station was constructed during 1868-1870, as a part of Kiev-Balta and Kiev-Kursk railroad constructions, which were also completed in 1870. The station was located in a valley of Lybid’ river, replacing soldiers' and gendarmes' settlements. The two-floor brick station building of Old English Gothic style was by the architect М. V. Vyshnevetskyi.The current Central Station building was constructed in 1927-1932 and designed by O. Verbytskyi. It was built in the style of Ukrainian Baroque with some elements of Constructivism. The Central Station building is designated as the Landmark of Architecture, numbered 193.In 2001, the building was restored to roughly its original state. In the same year, the new modern "Southern Station" building was erected at the opposite side of Central Station's sixteen tracks, being in reality not a separate station but merely another large entranceway to the Central Station, with new ticket windows and linked by a hallway above the track accesses. The renovation project also included two large underground parking structures, one of which remains uncompleted to the date.
