Budapest Keleti Railway Station (Budapest Keleti Pályaudvar) is the main international and inter-city railway station in Budapest, Hungary.
If you are travelling to Budapest by train or plane you may well pass through the railway station as the station is connected by a fast train service to Budapest Airport as well as fifteen other countries.
The railway station is located close to Baross tér on Kerepesi út. In Hungarian ‘keleti’ is the word for ‘easterly’.
The building was constructed in eclectic style between 1881 and 1884 and was one of the most modern railway stations of Europe in that time. It was planned by Gyula Rochlitz and János Feketeházy. The main façade is adorned with statues of James Watt (a Scottish engineer and key figure during the industrial revolutions) and George Stephenson (an English who invented the ‘Stephenson gauge’).
