  • We travelled safely, there is the Metro that takes you directly to the station, the police station is in that in the trains, a great Hall ticket office with so many doors open ... organized I would say!

  • Normal station. Moderately messy, noisy and silly. Reminiscent of the stations of the regional centers of RUSSIA end 90 's. the terminals for the sale of railway tickets deal only in Romanian, true priinimaût bank cards. The subway is directly accessible from the station building (then the arrivals-left side). In the center of the building a few eateries, coffee and muffins in the road. Clear pointers, getting lost difficult. Attraction.

  • Beauty does not shine, nothing special of yourself. On the same Metro station can be reached directly from the station. Find tickets, ticket sales terminals, placards and platform easily, and this is the most important thing. Is where to eat and drink coffee.
