Krakow Central Station goes underground

Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister, Willa Parkowa, has opened the newly-refurbished Kraków central station – Poland’s first underground railway interchange.

The ceremony on February 14 marked the end of a 130 million zł project to relocate the existing station’s concourse underground, connecting it with the city’s tram and bus networks.

Kraków central station is now spread across four floors, with the ticket hall and tram platforms now located beneath the main line platforms.

The project has been made possible through EU funding and is one of 96 station redevelopment and modernisation projects delivered by operator PKP since 2010.
