Architectural Building
Even if you're not traveling by train, visit Budapest Western Railway Station and admire the original glass and iron architecture that dates back to the 19th centruy. The station, completed in 1877, was built by the same company that constructed the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Though most of the structure has been refurbished and replaced over the years, the station still has its original look. In addition to providing all the amenities a traveler needs, such as ticket offices and money exchange booths, the station also features a selection of places where you can enjoy a meal or a quick drink. Of course, from here you'll be well-connected to the rest of the city by streetcar and metro, or you can catch a taxi nearby. Put Budapest Western Railway Station into our Budapest family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • In the rush of the traveler let Bewitched you by the architectural fineness of this station. An underlying metal framework spans the tracks without intermediate supports. A feat for the time. Walk one can along the waterfront and enjoy the moment to capture the movement of travellers... visit reserved for railroad enthusiasts...

  • On the ground out of the M3 Metro station, I looked at the front of the station. Ceiling dome and two towers built in the center of the glass-walled building and neighboring buildings, Zebra has been configured. Glass main building and surrounding building Eastern European-style combination is still felt in modern and Nice. The scenery in front of morning commuters to overflow from the railway station, on the street in front of tram is constantly vibrant backdrop. It was like after the train arrived but wanted to ask you if you get into the glass-covered Central railway station, West railway station into 17 main lines, the largest in Budapest and for how he sad dingy station. But the hustle and bustle of the train stations such as Gare de Lyon in Paris and Milan of Italy and the atmosphere was. Stations of the capital's largest station, morning rush hour surprising as the disappointed sober enough, I went to McDonald's.
