Wrocław's main train station deserves to be classified as a sight because of its architecture. Unless you have to run for a train, take your time to wander a bit round and look at the details. The castle-like station building has been renovated and refurbished before the European soccer championship in 2012. Now it is all shiny in bright Indian yellow.

The neogothic station building was opened in 1857. This is a rather early example of gothic revival in (then) Germany; English neogothic buildings were used as model for the design. The front with the main entrance, restaurants and offices, and the side wings are stone buildings. Behind, it's steel and glass. The main entrance is flanked by two towers that make the central wing resemble a neogothic castle-palace.

The transversal hall with the ticket and information counters was the original arrival hall. One train track was not sufficient for long, so the vaulted station hall with four platforms was added behind it, and the first hall became what it is now. Ticket counters and information desk reside behind pretty woodcarved framing.

When looking for your train, note that there are two different numberings, and two numbers displayed on the timetable. „Peron“ is the platform (just like the Fr3ench word "perron"), „tor“ the track. There are platforms 1 - 4 and tracks 1 - 8. Platform 2 has the tracks 3 and 4, for example.
