Today Kyiv has opened fourth railway station in the capital. It's meant to serve one of the huge districts in Kyiv only, not an entire city. Besides it, there is Central, Southern and the constructing largest in Europe Darnizkyj station ( vokzal ).

It is the new generation european class vokzal, combining strict effectiveness, comfort and modern, experimental design.

A well thought-out system of passengers flows is based on the underground principles: pay desks - tourniquets-waiting rooms or boarding platforms. All the pedestrian passages are glazed and passengers platforms are roofed with autonomous sheds. On the lower levels of the passenger rooms will be situated service rooms, back- and engineering rooms.

You guys are certifiably insane:lol:

Seriously...this station is one of the best i have ever seen, looks almost space-age.
A must see for ever traveller:yes:

And when I see what Belgrade authorities have done with similar projects...especially after spending hundreds of millions, if not over a billion dollars...i simply have to :cry: :cry: :cry:

I think our city authorities are trying to avoid being "typical" which is not always good, they're approving the most ridiculous designs ( not this one, I like it ).

Stas, what's the type of train that's shown with the rug? I mean do you know it's model or something? I know it's one of those fast ones...

I don't know the model. You mean the actual car, not the train, right? It's Ukrainian railway express-car. It goes Kyiv-Kharkiv and Kyiv-Dnipropetrovs'k.

Yeah it's not in the centre, there are only commieblocks around it, it's in the outskirts of the city.
