Haapsalu Train Station, Estonia.
The Haapsalu Station building was custom designed, because the resort town was a favourite holiday site for the Russian Tsars. The complex has four parts – the passenger building, Imperial Pavilion, the colonnade connecting them, and a unique 216-metre-long covered platform. The first passenger train arrived in Haapsalu in 1905 and the last left in 1995. The old railway embankment has been rebuilt into a 50-km-long recreational trail. The discarded station It is today a Railway Museum.
