The building of the old train station in Katowice was erected at the beginning of the twentieth century, and for many years it was one of the flagships of Upper Silesia. In the course of time, the railroad station was becoming less and less sufficient for the needs of the growing passenger traffic. This situation resulted in the several extensions of the building by adding upper floors, and after the Second World War, it was decided to build a new facility, which was opened in 1972. Currently, the old train station building belongs to a private company.
