This train station is the oldest in the city of Moscow and trains take their routes to North-Western (Saint Petersburg included), Novgorod, Petrozavodsk, and Murmansk. Nevertheless, there are also some routes heading to Tallinn in Estonia and Helsinki in Finland. The architect Konstantin Thon constructed the train station from 1844 to 1851 and resembles now the Moscow train station in Saint Petersburg. It has had many different names since it first opened. Its first name was Peterburgsky Station. After the first Emperor Nicholas, the first died in 1855 it was named after him to Nikolayevsky Station. To remember the October Revolution, the train station changed its name to Oktyabrsky Station in 1924. In 1925 it got its current name at the same time when the city Petrograd became its name Leningrad. It got renovated two times in 1950 and in 1972. The amount of passengers is constantly increasing.
Inside of the train station in the hall you can see a Statue of Lenin in honour to Vladimir Lenin (from whom the train station got its name). It is often used as a meeting point.

Most of the time the waiting spaces are very crowded but you can still go to the Waiting Hall which is located next to the internet café. Inside the hall in front of the waiting space, you can check all the times of arrival and departure for every train on the Indicator Board.
