Vilnius Central Railway Station is an LTG Link train station in Vilnius, Lithuania. The railway station is between two neighbourhoods of Vilnius — Naujininkai and Naujamiestis — and on the edge of the Old Town.

History[change | change source]

The station was opened in 1869 while building the Saint Petersburg–Warsaw Railway.[2] It was destroyed in 1945 during the World War II and in 1950 it was rebuilt in socialist realism style. The station was renovated in 1998 and then again in 2023.[2]
