Believe it or not, in many places the seasons Train stations are much more than just places of passage that connect us to the destination. They are authentic works of art, corners where waiting doesn't matter. Of course, unfortunately, this does not happen in too many places.

Thus, we are going to show you some of the most beautiful stations in the world although, unfortunately, we have had to leave some in the pipeline. Many of them are in Europe, but it is also possible to find really beautiful buildings on other continents. Do you want to join us?
Grand Central, New York
First of all, we want to talk about the Grand Central Terminal, also known as Grand Central Station or Grand Central. It is the most famous train station in the world, in addition to being considered one of the most beautiful. Its roof stands out starry and its Beaux Arts façade. Inside the station numerous films have been shot.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Station, Mumbai
From the United States we moved to Bombay, India, to visit the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Station. It is a Gothic palace that was declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco IN 2004. Its construction was projected by the architect Frederick Williams Stevens in 1878 inspired by the European medieval world, although with Indian touches.
St. Pancras Station, London
In the north of the city of London, in the Candem district, we find St. Pancras, a station that was almost demolished in the 1960s, something that did not happen thanks to the protests of the citizen. Attached to the station is the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, which was reopened in 2011 after being idle for 75 years.
Antwerp-Central Station, Antwerp
We also want to tell you about the Antwerp-Central Station, which is the main railway station in the city of Antwerp. Built between 1895 and 1905 it was remodeled and expanded for the arrival of the high speed in 1998. Designed by Luis Delacenserie, the building stands out, among other things, for its facade, its living room and its monumental arch.
Light Station, Sao Paulo
The Estaçao da Luz (Light Station in Spanish) was designed by the English architect Charles Henry Driver, who was inspired by the seasons of the time victorian In England. This monumental building was restored in 2004 on the occasion of the 450th anniversary of Sao Paulo. On the other hand, it is important to note that the station houses the Museum of the Portuguese Language.

Unlike the previous ones, this building stands out for its modernity, in addition to its privileged location (located next to the Brandenburg Gate, the Chancellery and the Reichstag). Known as Berlin Hauptbahnof, the station is completely eco-friendly.
