Wroclaw in southeastern Poland arguably has the most attractive large railway station in Poland, though of course there are other stand-out examples too, elsewhere.

What makes Wroclaw quite attractive is the Neo-Tudor building with touches of Art-Nouveau and the elegant roof canopy with high , raised platforms. The large red station letters "Wroclaw Glowny" on the east and west end of the station are also an eyecatcher and very photogenic.

Here is a short film, taped in August 2020, of current operations at Wroclaw Glowny, which originally was built from 1899 to 1904 as Breslau Hauptbahnhof during the German era. The city of Wroclaw (Breslau) has been a part of a Poland since the end of WWII in 1945. The city itself is also a gem, as it has a true European flavor with historic German buildings and contemporary Polish vibe.

The film shows a mixture of loco-hauled trains and also plenty of modern or modernized railcars.
