Art Nouveau station hall in Prague

Art nouveaul station hall at the main railway station of Prague, Czech Republic

The Art Nouveau hall in Prague’s main train station (Praha hlavní nádraží) is a bit hidden. Once it represented the splendour and glory of the Habsburg Empire. Today it is located away from the streams of rail travellers and only fanciers make their way to the hall. The structure was built in 1902/12 according to the plans of Josef Fanta (1856-1954).
