The subject of the paper is to show the main railway station in Toruń in the light of comparative analyses. Its aim is to bring out the characteristic elements in the superstructure, architectural decoration and interior design of the station and to compare them with a group of twelve other structures of this type located in former East Prussia. These buildings were grouped on the basis of stylistic similarities, but they are also connected by the time of creation, because they were all built in the second half of the nineteenth century.
