This old fashioned railway station is worth seeing by itself. It was inaugurated on 25th September 1872.

It is full of kiosks but none of them sell ?In your Pocket? guides or postcards. There are left luggage facilities, an information, a small supermarket and snack places including the big M. In one hall, there was a printed timetable hanging there but it was out of date. You should take a look at the big board by the information. Don?t expect the ticket vendors to speak anything other than Romanian (at least at the domestic windows) which are in a separate hall. But all the young people speak English and we were happily helped.
