In 1870 the movement by rail from Moscow to Yaroslavl through Alexandrov was opened. Alexander's railway station was placed on the end of an axis of the main street of the city. Constructed here in the beginning of the XXth century the station which has kept up till now.

In 1874 the new plan of the city was adopted. It is possible to assume, that architect N.A.Artleben was its author. The project provided the further development of the city aside railway station on the basis of the regular plan. In 1903 the stone building of station entered into an architectural ensemble of station of Alexandrov. It became one of the most representative public buildings of the city in which eclectic forms of classicism prevail.

You may watch my high resolution photo of Alexandrov on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 56º 23' 56.02" N 38º 42' 20.80" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Alexandrov Railway Station.
