Wroclaw's Main Train Station (Dworzec Glowny in Polish) is a suitably impressive, albeit ageing building, with which to greet newcomers to the city by train. Left luggage, half-decent toilet facilities and an array of shops and eateries (including KFC and MacDonalds of course) reassure you that you have not arrived in some East European backwater. Location wise you'll find yourself south of the city, about twenty five minutes walk from the Main Square. If you're leaving Wroclaw by train then be sure to allow a good half an hour or more to buy tickets - queues at the booths can get pretty long.

The renovation is complete and the station is a great place to be. Lots of original features have been maintained. There's even a library on the top floor.
The train station still has a long ways to go before it is completed but it looks great! The main hall is huge and there are lots of people around to help with tickets and information .
It's all true but all should be ready for Euro 2012
Train station is under reconstruction, however, it does not seem near completion. There is a temporary train station entrance now directly across from the bus station. Only a handful of terminals, and no teller service. Tickets are available at machines to the right of the entrance about 100 feet. Keep your wits about you in this station, as many vagrants and beggers hang out here. There's no seating, it's just the bones of the station and a screen to see arrivals. Don't arrive too early before departure as this is definitely not a place you want to be waiting around for a while.
Refurbishment has been going on for more than a year... Main building blocked, tunnel blocked, new entrance opened a few days ago.
Currently 11 minutes by foot to go from one side to the other. Enjoying the fun every time I miss my train.
Quite a nice looking station, for Poland! On ground floor, and smells decent. The train platforms have lots of character.
