THE WROCŁAW GŁÓWNY RAILWAY STATION was opened in 1856 as the fourth station building in Wrocław. The design of the station was prepared by Wilhelm Grapow, the royal architect of Koleje Górnośląskie, who personally supervised construction works. In 1899-1904, the station was extended according to the design of Bernard Klüsche in the style combining elements of historicism and Art Nouveau, preserving the existing construction to a great extent. However, the time of war and subsequent period of the People’s Republic of Poland were not good for the building. The station was deprived of art deco ornaments which were installed during the renovation at the turn of the centuries. The great refurbishment of the monumental building performed in 2012 and co-financed by the EU enabled the restoration of the former, representative look of the Wrocław station. Thanks to it, an over 160-year old building was equipped with technical solutions which allow us to regard it as a fully modern station.
