The railway station in Bolesławiec is one of the oldest stations managed by PKP S.A., its origins date back to 1845. The present character of the buildings and the shape of the station date back to 1926. At that time, the building underwent extensive reconstruction, thanks to which it acquired a modernist character.

The railway station in Bolesławiec is a historic building, therefore its renovation was carried out under the supervision of the conservator of monuments. The building has been completely renovated, but at the same time retained its former character. During the renovation, modern solutions were taken into account, meeting the needs of travelers as well as security and energy saving systems.

The facility has been adapted to the needs of disabled people, including the blind and visually impaired. Among other things, Braille plates and multisensory plates with a map of the station were used.

New electronic boards informing about train arrivals and departures have been installed in the hall. The facade with its characteristic architectural details was renovated. The interior of the waiting room combines modernity with historical elements. The tiles adorning the main hall and corridor, as well as other ceramic details, have undergone conservation. The passenger service zone is connected to the commercial space, where service points are to be located.
