Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.
