Darnytsia (Ukrainian: Дарниця) is the largest Ukrainian Railways station (and the main freight station[1]) of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, located in the city's Left-bank Darnytsia area.

Built in the nineteenth century, the Darnytsia railway hub has grown into a gigantic railway center, expanding for more than 10 km along the main east–west route. Started in 2004, construction is under way at the new Darnytsia railway terminal complex. When finished, the station will serve long-distance passenger trains, house own station of the Kyiv metropolitan, a two-storey car parking, a tunnel for automobile and tram traffic. The complex is meant to become Kyiv's second long-distance terminal, easing the traffic tension in the main Kyiv Passenger railway station.[2]
