The dimensions of the station seemed so huge that standing on one side of the building, the other side was simply not visible. What winter garden was there?

As far as I know, the river station building is still the largest river station in Europe.

And at first it may seem that #the river station is the only building in the city that has not been affected by the deplorable state of Volgograd. But apparently this does not happen.

But back to the Volgograd river station. Despite vain attempts to give the building an external gloss, it is currently in the process of desolation and destruction.

And only motor ships somehow give liveliness to this place.
