Every capital city has a big railway station that has its own unique story, and Keleti Railway Station is no exception. The station opened its gates nearly 140 years ago and soon became the busiest railway station in the city. It has a cultural and symbolic role too: back in the day, its main function was to link the Eastern side of Europe (including Transylvania and Belgrade) with the Western parts (Wien and Paris).
The building still worths a visit, even if you don't plan to use the trains. Inside the station you can check out the breathtaking Lotz-hall which got renovated approximately 10 years ago. The walls are richly decorated due to its eclectic architectural style.
