Sivas railway station

Sivas railway station (Turkish: Sivas garı) is the main railway station in Sivas, Turkey. Located just southwest of the city center, the station is serviced by three inter-city trains from Ankara, which continue east to Kars, Tatvan and Kurtalan respectively. Due to the rehabilitation of the Kalın-Samsun railway, only one regional train to Divriği services Sivas.
