Centraal Station, Antwerpen

The 'railway cathedral' is the name given to Antwerpen's central train station in my '12 Adventures in Antwerp' guidebook ...

In the book it is described as one of the city's major landmarks ... true enough, I can see its rooftop dome from my desk, across the city and through the heat haze of today.

It was built at the turn of the century, showcasing both Belgian architecture and building materials. Today commuters and tourists still arrive and depart beneath this 'masterpiece of steel and glass'.
