THE ŁÓDŹ KALISKA RAILWAY STATION The first idea about constructing a railway station appeared in 1862. At that time, in the Prussian partition, a Committee for the Construction of Railroad from Wrocław to Warszawa was established. It asked the emperor to give his consent to the construction of the railroad. With no success. As late as in 1898, after 30-year-long efforts of the most important officials of the Kingdom of Poland, tsar Nicholas II approved plans regarding the construction of the Warsaw-Kalisz railroad. The first train arrived at the railway station designed by Czesław Domaniewski in 1902. The old station building functioned by 1980s and was demolished in 1982. In 1994, the new building was finished; it refers to the old Art Nouveau station. In the near future, the station used by nearly 3 million passengers will be rebuilt. According to the plans, renovation works will include, among others, rebuilding of the exterior, of the main hall, of the waiting room and ticket windows. A system for dynamic visual information will be installed and the construction will be fully adopted for disabled.
