I first went to this station at the end of the 60s. In the intervening 50 years the station has changed a lot, but the charm has remained. It's clean, well signed and good to look at. Inside there is a stunning hall with the platforms arranged vertically. I guess you have to see it...

A very beautiful building both from inside and outside. Grand from outside though not so massive from inside; as inside part is mostly modern construction except for the main wall which is old.
