THE GDAŃSK GŁÓWNY RAILWAY STATION A splendid building was erected in the years 1894-1900 in the Gdańsk Renaissance style which was popular at that time. In 1990s, an entresol with points of service was constructed in the station building hall. In 2013, the entresol was demolished, which was the first stage of the building refurbishment. According to the assumptions, the refurbishment will bring back the monumental building to the form before 100 years ago. The space of the Gdańsk Główny railway station is both passenger-friendly and open to cultural initiatives. The most famous of the latter was performed in cooperation with the National Museum in Gdańsk. In the years 2006 to 2011, a half-round window in the building’s facade was decorated with a reproduction of “The Last Judgement” created by Hans Memling; the original painting belongs to the Gdańsk museum collection The Gdańsk Główny railway station is used by an average of 9 million passengers a year.
