History of The Moscow railway station
The twin brother of the Leningrad train station at the Moscow train station was built in the mid-19th century. And it has a name in honor of then-Emperor Nicholas I Nikolaevskaya, while the modern name of the station is given only in 1930
By the way, the author of the construction project of the Moscow train station was Konstantin Ton. The location chosen for Nicholaevskaya Station allowed to fit into the structure of the main highway of the capital and thus be in the central business part of the city. This, of course, made the station very convenient for passengers.
The emperor himself took an active part in the design of the new station square.
In 1923 the railway station got a new name Oktyabrsky. And later in 1930 changed to Moskovsky (Moscow).
