#223 of 551 in Things to do in Budapest
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.

    Built in 1870, by the Eiffel company of Paris, with metallic structure and beautiful architecture. Unfortunately you need a good restoration. Inside is very ugly. What's interesting is the old waiting room that was transformed into a fast food store and is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. Worth knowing at least outside station and enter the diner.

    The building in which the presence of Eifffeliane instances are the masters. the price hikes in iron, we already have seen appear during the 19th century, signed by the great French master in buildings world-wide known as la Tour Eiffel and the bridge over the Douro River in Porto, are here reproduced by his pupils to support roofs and large Windows. The iron structure reinterprets the lightness and brightness of the Gothic in a modern way, although here, lightened shelves to better deploy efforts struttturali, grant a bit much for a floral ornamentation at all useless. Also feature the waiting room and ticket office. To see.

    Classical railway station with high ceilings, pigeons, beggars and local passengers. Quite old but gives a taste of local, a little neglected living life.
