Eiffel was smitten with Budapest upon visiting and moved his family here soon thereafter; during the 10 years or so he lived in Budapest, his firm completed a larger number of projects, among them this imposing station.
- This is a beautiful beaux-arts train station, befitting a grand European capital. It was designed by the Eiffel firm (the architect was August de Serres), and the relationship to the famous tower is evident in the gracious style of the cast-iron frame and ample windows. The station was finished in 1877 and nearly demolished in the twentieth century, but ended up being completely renovated. Nowadays, it is used as a point of departure for trains heading eastwards.
