  Central Station in Brussels
by Nemorino
 
 

As the name implies, this station is in the center of Brussels, but it is by no means the main station. On the contrary, only regional and commuter trains stop here. For international trains, go to the Midi (South) Station instead.

The Central Station was designed in the 1920s by Victor Horta, but wasn't actually built until 1952.

When I was there they were busy renovating the inside of the station, which is just as well because it had all gotten quite run down over the years.
