Station Beauty


In celebration of Grand Central’s 100th birthday in February, CN Traveler rounded up a wonderful selection of some of the most incredible train stations around the globe. Even having seen a few in person, we were amazed to find the terrific range and impressive design of so many stations, some completed recently, and others 100+ years ago. There’s Antwerp’s lavish, glass-domed Central Station, built in the late 1800s; the turrets of Kuala Lampur’s station; and the lush, green palm-tree interior of Madrid’s Atocha Station. All show the importance of the train station, past and present, as an essential, beautiful introduction to a city.
