A pleasant place, but there were hardly any trains coming and going. Hope it might become bustling if the tracks are relayed and services restored. They used this place a Jazz bar for some time, i have not heard from my friends since then. Government was having plans to restore it.

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

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.
