Central do Brasil, Rio de Janeiro

2.0
Central do Brasil is the most important train station in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. It is the last stop of Rio's railway network, as well as a hub for connection with the city subway and a bus station. Central do Brasil was also a preeminent stop in the interstate Central do Brasil railroad, which did link Rio de Janeiro with São Paulo and Minas Gerais, though the railroad is now deactivated. The station is located in downtown Rio de Janeiro, along the Avenida Presidente Vargas and across from the Campo de Santana park.

  • Yes, the place is very nice, the buildings around too ... but there is no-man's land, without policing.

  • After many years spent in Brazil's central to see the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and got a good impression. It's still a beautiful architecture and this time was clean and less chaotic.

  • A place quite moved by the number of people leaving and entering the place... It should be very careful and not be with cell phones in hand. Since round many thieves. The place is a little dirty and missing an improvement in infrastructure.
