Antwerp's train station

I've been working a lot in Antwerp these past few weeks.
To my pleasure I can see one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture when I go there: the train station.

I don't know much about its history but I think I'm going to buy a book because it fascinates me so much: it's huge, a great mix of modern and older architecture, it's welcoming and warm and it's very clean. Plus, it's just next to the zoo! Yay!

What I love the most about this place is the feeling of importance and strength you get just looking at it: you have to stop and look around, the details in each room is impressive and wonderful. The part they added is really modern but it goes so well with the actual building. It's really long, reminding is of how high the main room is.

I really love the tones in the stones, I love the different clocks you see, I love the beautiful stairs and the lovely upstairs windows.
If you ever go in Belgium and you like architecture, it's a must! This piece of art is monumental and you'll be in awe for a long while...
