In 1853, Baron Stieglitz, together with Baron Feleizin, began building a private railway from St. Petersburg to Peterhof. The station was built for this railway and until 1872 was called Peterhof. The movement of trains from the station was opened on July 21, 1857. In 1860-1870, the private Peterhof railway was connected by a new line with Krasnoe Selo, and through it along the Baltic Railway – with Gatchina, Narva, Revel (now Tallinn) and the Baltic Port (now Paldiski). On December 19, 1872, the first train from Revel arrived at the station, from that time the station became known as the Baltic.

The modern station building was built in 1855-1858 by the architect A. I. Krakau. The station was based on the Gare de l’Est in Paris. Two-story wings were located on the sides of the building, the left one was intended for the imperial family. The aprons have a glass ceiling, in the stained-glass window of the facade there is a clock “Pavel Bure”, which is still in operation.
