Keleti Railway Station is almost like the lifeline of Budapest as it is the main international station as well as the main intercity station of Budapest. The architecture of the place represents what the definition of modernity was when the initial main stations of Budapest were being built. This station was made between the year 1881-1884 and was one of the main terminals of Europe even during that era. Karoly Lotz has gifted this place with various mindblowing frescoes that adorn the inside walls of the station. The facade outside has statues of James Watt and George Stephenson- both of whom hold prominent places in history.
