The article discusses the problem of the functionality of the railway stations locatedat the active lines in the most urbanized part of Silesian Voivodeship – in Katowice Conurbation. Data on the studied objects collected during the inventory carried out in mid-2013. The study focused on the most important functions of station buildings – communication, trade and services.
