“Over-rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

Beautiful old colonial train station building, but a bit of anti-climax!

“Definitely go here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

It has all the old world charm we were looking for in Maputo. We sat on the platform for about an hour. It was lovely and cool while it was boiling hot outside. It appears they are renovating the station, and there is a bar/restaurant there (that we walked into but didn't eat at) which is recommended by other reviews. But weirdly, there are no trains actually working!! I believe there is on train a day that visits the station. What a pity!

We learned that Eiffel designed the dome. It is a beautiful structure.

“Maputo Train Station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

This station was used in the film "Blood Diamonds" starring Leonardo di Capirio. The architecture (like many buildings in Maputo) is beautiful as is the square in front of the station.
