Project of a new railway station
In 1935 the famous Soviet architect Nikolai Miturich presented the project of a new building of the Petrozavodsk railway station, ordered by the Kirov Railway. The new city main railway station was planned to be built at the Golikovka station.
The design of the station was directly borrowed from the Helsinki and Vyborg railway stations, designed by celebrated Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen in the Nordic Jugendstil (National Romantic style).
The project was not implemented due to lack of funding.
