The North Railway Station, Bucharest, Romania.
Bucharest North railway station is the main railway station in Bucharest and the largest railway station in Romania. The vast majority of mainline trains to and from Bucharest originate from this station. The station was built in 1872. The station and its surroundings were heavily bombed by the Allies in April 1944 during a campaign aimed at the German supply lines, since the station played an important part in the Romanian railway network and was the main departure point for troops headed to the Eastern Front.
The station has 14 tracks and 8 platforms. The building is simillar to the Nothern Railway Station from Paris. The railway station serves national and international routes (daily routes to Wien, Sofia, Budapest, Bratislava, Thesalonik, Chisinau, Moscow, Warsaw, Belgrad etc).
