Moscow railway station map is quite extensive. Kazansky railway station or “Kazansky vokzal” in Russian is one of nine railway stations, located on the Komsomolskaya Square. It is a neighbor of the nearby Leningradsky and Yaroslavsky stations. Kazanskiy station is a typical representative of Russian Revival architecture. It is a complicated composition with disordered symmetry and intertwined architectural patterns. Colorful rooms of different heights, widths, peaked roofs, and a clock tower stand in contrast with the outlandish exterior. But this exact contrast makes it a unique masterpiece. Most of southeastern Russia, Central Asian states and also Kazakhstan are the station's operation area. It serves the two major railway lines from Moscow: one of the routes of the Trans-Siberian Railway, the eastern direction to Kazan, Yekaterinburg, and further on; and the southeastern direction to Ryazan.
