More like a palace on many floors than a station - well worth a visit Ornate turn of the century architecture but much grandeur

Wow, I was impressed by this station. So beautiful, clean, maintained beautifully. Such amazing architecture, it wasn’t as buzzing as i thought it would be. Just so impressive to see something so beautifully made and still standing. I like how the have modernised the space.

As I've been here multiple times, the sight of this beautiful building always gives a smile on my cheek. Inside this train station, you can find a shop, snack shop (hot and cold), starbucks, toilet, and a lot of little shops.
