Review of Railway Station

Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

I've spent about 6 hours at this place waiting for my train from Odessa to Kharkov. I have a mixed opinion about it. It' s clean inside, not overcrowded, with nice chairs. At the same time fuss bathroom facilities are just horrible. There is a McDonald's restaurant right across the street, so if you are hungry it' s pretty much your only choice. However, you can walk about 20 minutes to the city center where you can find plenty of restaurants with nice local cuisine.

While it isn't as big as the station in Kiev, it is a very good station. If you are an English speaker, you will have to hunt around and figure things out. I had to go to a second line to purchase a ticket from someone who understood English, but that is a minor thing. We are traveling to enjoy the culture of another country. The train service was speedy and fairly priced.

If you travel by train and do not speak russian you need to go to the other side of the building. The building is in a U shape and you are looking for window 7 they speak english.

Impressive station and certainly worth a look even if you are not here to get a train. Toilets were fairly gross despite a charge. Reasonably good sitting area to wait for your train.

Good luck if you don't speak Russian or Ukrainian. No signage and long hopeless lines to get tickets - presuming you can figure out which line to stand in. Recommended for a true "Soviet' cliche.
