The first station was built in the years 1845-1846, during the construction of the Warsaw-Vienna railway. In 1873 the station was enlarged and then extended by architect Czesław Domaniewski. The current postmodern architectural style station building was designed by architect Ryszard Frankowicz, on November 9, 1996, on the 150th anniversary of the railroad reaching Częstochowa. It was officially opened by the then President of Poland, Aleksander Kwaśniewski. On May 24, 1997, a monument with the bust of Władysław Biegański was unveiled in front of the station.
According to the Gazeta Wyborcza ranking of 2008, Częstochowa railway station was considered the third most beautiful station in Poland, behind Białystok railway station and Lublin railway station.
