Stockholm Central Station ( _sv. Stockholms centralstation, Stockholm C) is the largest railway station in Sweden. The station is situated in the district of Norrmalm at Vasagatan. The station was opened July 18, 1871. Today the station is not only the largest station in Sweden, but also the largest travel centre in the Nordic region with over 250,000 visitors daily. [cite web |url=http://www.jernhusen.se/templates/Page.aspx?id=981 |title=Stockholm |accessdate=2008-01-13 |publisher=Jernhusen ] . Of them are about 170,000 travellers (105,000 with commuter trains, 25,000 with Arlanda Express and 40,000 with other trains).

The building

The station was built between 1867 and 1871. Adolf W. Edelsvärd was the architect. Until 1925 the tracks led in to the station but during a renovation 1925-1927 the tracks were moved to the west and the former track hall was converted into a 119 meter long, 28 meter wide and 13 meter high waiting hall. During the renovation the station was extended to the south through the construction of the southern pavilion. Today this part of the station houses a conference facility. Next to the conference facility is the Royal waiting hall where the Royal Family waits when travelling by train.

In 1951 the facade towards Vasagatan was changed and given a more simplified look. In 1958 an underground passage to T-Centralen was opened.

In front of the central station stands a statue of Nils Ericson.
