Moscow Yaroslavskaya railway station (Russian: Москва́-Яросла́вская, Moskva-Yaroslavskaya) – also known as the Yaroslavsky railway terminal (Russian: Яросла́вский вокза́л, Yaroslavskiy vokzal) – is one of the nine main railway stations in Moscow.

Situated on Komsomolskaya Square (close to the Kazansky and Leningradsky Stations), Moscow Yaroslavskaya has the highest passenger throughput of all nine of the capital's main-line terminuses. It serves eastern destinations, including those in the Russian Far East, being the western terminus of the world's longest railway line, the Trans-Siberian, the station takes its name from that of the ancient city of Yaroslavl which, lying 284 rail kilometres (276 miles) north-east of Moscow, is the first large city served by the line.

History[edit]

The first Yaroslavsky station was built on this site in 1862, next to Moscow's first rail terminal, the Oktyabrsky (today: Leningradsky) station.

The existing Neorussian revival building facing Komsomolskaya Square was built in 1902–1904 by Fyodor Shechtel, the main departure hall beneath the fairy-tale roof connected directly into the boarding concourse. In 1910, its platforms and concourse were expanded by Lev Kekushev. Two major additions, in 1965–66 and 1995, further expanded station capacity. Currently, the station serves around 300 pairs of trains daily.[1]
