The train station is redone on a grand scale to show off the gas wealth like other buildings in Ashgabad.When you see this building this is similar to the other building on Ashgabad.

Take one picture of this old structure while passing by and it will be enough. It's not even close to resembling Grand Central Terminal in NYC or even Kazan Train Station in Moscow.

Was not excited with the station. It is not an old station. Mainly used by locals for within the country. Long platforms and on the main road. A security requested me not to take photos.

Monolithic white marble structure like most public buildings and government offices. Good place to catch a train but not much worth seeing.

The station is large, white marble outside with a few shops/stalls inside. Not worth a special journey but if travelling by train worth looking round

We decided to check out the Ashgabat Train Station a few weeks ago while in the city just to see it really. It is a grand marble structure, fairly young too only from the late 40’s so not a lot of history here as far...More

It has been build after the earthquake of 1948 and represents an example of soviet style architecture. It has been refurbished recently. It does not represent anything outstanding, but only working train station for inter country communication. You can see there a lot of local...More

Modern large railway station done in typical Ashgabat style, ie large, as always marble clad and typically OTT. For me the main attraction of the station were people. We had seen virtually no-one whilst touring around Ashgabat city, indeed the city seamed to be bizarrely...More
