There are two entrances to the station with the main one involving passing through a metal detector (strangely the smaller second entrance to the left of the building as you look at it has no security). At both you will find ticket windows and timetables. It’s worth noting that the arrival and departure times of trains to mainland Russia are displayed in mainland Russian time.
Getting to town
As you leave the station you will find the bus station to the right and from there you take both local and international buses. If you’re looking to get to the city centre, the easiest is by taxi (note our Taxi text) or alternatively turn right out of the main entrance and walk 50m where you’ll find a bus stop from where you can take buses 36, 29, 5k or 34 to Victory Square.
