The most beautiful train station on earth... (PHOTO)
Aug 25, 2014

The website Mashable just published a few days ago their (subjective) list of the most beautiful train stations on the planet.  St Pancras is there and Grand Central and a few others.

Amazingly, the small country that I live in, is in the list with two trainstations (and I photographed both of them).

Liège Guillemins is a creation by famous contemporary architect Calatrava, like a jellyfish made of steel.  It occupies 12th place in the list.

But the top spot is taken by Antwerp Central Station: the main building dates from more than 100 years ago and is a masterpiece of art nouveau.  And recent renovations have converted this terminus station into a run-through (or run-below) station, by adding more levels of platforms below the original single (elevated) level.

Here's one shot from the grand hall (by coincidence, again a fisheye shot...):

PLEASE JOIN ME and share your photos from the other rail stations in the list.

Let's make this an international showcase!
