The station building

The station complex consists of several buildings: the Central Station, the South Station, and several suburban platforms.

The station has two entrances: the main one from the city center and the metro station, and the southern one from the Solomianskyi district. The southern station may be considered a separate station, but in fact it is one complex of buildings. The main difference is that there is a McDonald's near the main entrance and a KFC near the southern entrance.
