City railway station Baranovichi (Baranavichy-Paleskiya station) is not only an important infrastructure facility, but also a landmark with history. Trains and the railway are the foundation and basis for Baranavichy; even on the city’s coat of arms you can see a golden steam locomotive on a red background.

The railway station itself opened on this site back in 1884, and the first station building was small and made of wood.

However, the city grew, and the number of trains passing through Baranovichi increased exponentially. Therefore, by the end of the 19th century, the construction of a new stone station was completed.

It was this building that was most often captured by photographers of that time and printed on postcards. It’s not surprising – the architecture is gorgeous. Unfortunately, the old station was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, and a modern one in a different style was erected in its place.

Near the station there is a curious building that was apparently built during the time of the old station. The small one-story building has an eclectic architecture and was previously used for the needs of the railway museum.

To the left of the station entrance, pay attention to the water tower. There is little information about it; it was built in the post-war years, possibly simultaneously with the new station.
