Bratislava Hlavna...

This is Bratislava's main station, in 99% of cases your train will arrive or depart from here.  The station is not huge, it has just 6 platforms numbered from 1 to 6 starting on the side closest to the main station entrance.  The modern foyer at the front was added in 1987 as a temporary measure but it's still in use today, known locally as the Skleník or greenhouse.  Behind lurks is the original 1905 station building, which was heavily remodelled in 1960 when the impressive frescos were added.  Photos courtesy of DiscoverByRail.com.
