• Address: Kolejowa 1, 78-500 Drawsko Pomorskie

The railway station in Drawsko Pomorskie was officially opened at the end of 1877. It owes its uniqueness to its history, the beauty of architecture and restoration in recent years. Therefore, it was included in the group of the main cultural heritage buildings in the region. 

This is a classic example of a station from the mid-nineteenth century. All the constitutive buildings were made of red brick, which was typical for the period of construction. The walls have uniform composition; there is no change in raw material or style. The roofs, however, are characterised by a wide variety of styles: there are gabled and hipped roofs. It is especially worth paying attention to decorative patterns at the windows and cornices. The crude brick style is soothed by wooden windows and doors. 

The complex includes a main building with a large two-storey body, and ancillary buildings (including a utility and warehouse building).

The station underwent a complete renovation in 2011 as it had been bought by the Polish State Railways from the municipality authorities and received a grant from the European Union. Previously, it was derelict and dirty building with numerous defects in the façade, broken windows, and the surface was used senselessly.

Currently, the station consists of two platforms and three tracks and a full complex of facility buildings. The former waiting room, which was far too large for the number of travellers using it, was divided into smaller parts. Next to the waiting room, which makes time pleasant for the visitors by the use of funny images painted on the walls, there is a tourist information centre and an exhibition open to the public. In addition, the station building houses the NGOs focusing on the environment protection and ecology. 

It is a very good example of combining the beauty of architecture with the public service in its broad meaning because, apart from being the means of communication, the train serves as a cultural and educational place.
