HistoryEdit

An 1890 act of the Royal Hungarian Government authorised the building of the main station and maintenance shop in Zagreb.[3] Construction of the 186.5 metre long neoclassical style station building was overseen by Hungarian architect Ferenc Pfaff.[1] Sculptural works were undertaken by the Hungarian sculptor Vilim Marschenko.[3] The station opened on 1 July 1892.[3] It is one of the largest public buildings built in 19th century Zagreb.[4]

Reconstruction works were undertaken in 1986–87 (just before the 1987 Summer Universiade), and again in 2006.
