History and designEdit
The station was built between 1914 and 1918 in the Byzantine Revival style, which is especially pronounced in the 51 m-high (167 ft) clocktower. Originally named the Bryansk station, it was designed by Ivan Rerberg and Vladimir Shukhov, and is considered an important landmark of architecture and engineering of the time.
The station building is flanked by a gigantic train shed which is distinguished by its simplicity and constructive boldness. The platforms are covered by a massive glazed parabolic structure (length 321 metres (1,053 ft), width 47.9 metres (157 ft), height 30 m (98 ft)) weighing over 1250 tons. Its open-work steel trusses are clearly visible, and they demonstrate the elegance of the grandiose building.
