      Yes, I did take some pictures from the front but I much prefer this as a view...

      A bit more impressive than my local railway station!

      Yes, I'd certainly recommend it.

      Terrific. A reminder, as if we need it, that Budapest is in central europe, not eastern...

      This would have been the product of the boom period Hungary underwent as it gained greater status within the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the same period that produced the Parliament and many of Budapest's other most notable buildings.

      Fantastic shot. You captured the old glory of the station.

      I would have liked to have seen this for real. We arrived at Keleti Pályaudvar and left by air.

      I have to say - although the stations are very beautifully architectured (and this is no criticism of the above photograph), they are all very run down - especially in comparison to the rest of those parts of the city. They could be very grand, but instead need a lot of work doing on them.

      True. Budapest is one of those cities, like Venice or New Orleans, that is known for its decay as much as its splendour. My feeling was that this remains evident in places like this and others, but that this was likely to decrease over time. I presume that Budapest had a period of architectual excellence as it gained greater autonomy within Austria-Hungary and then fell into decline with the Soviet Occupation (not uncommon for Eastern Europe and something I also saw in East Berlin).
