Kielce Bus Station
Location: Kielce, Poland
Architect: Edward Modrzejewski
Genre: Modernist, Communist architecture, former Eastern Bloc
When completed in 1984, Kielce’s bus station was considered to be state-of-the-art and could accommodate 1,500 buses and up to 24,000 passengers daily. Up until the fall of communism in Poland (1989), the depot was managed by the state-run PKS public transport company. Thereafter, it as privatised and with the advent of more private vehicles and less demand for public transport in Poland, the bus station has been neglected and is in poor condition.
