Antwerp Central Station
Belgium

Dubbed the "railway cathedral", Antwerp's Central Station was built between 1895 and 1905 by Louis Delacenserie, and widely regarded as the finest example of railway architecture in Belgium. The venue is a good starting point for sightseeing in Antwerp. The inside is decorated in eclectic style with the use of marble and the presence of a gigantic staircase, and the platforms are covered by an immense metal and glass dome (typical of turn-of-the-century European railway stations).For those arriving by train into Antwerp, it is an architectural introduction to the elegant city; for those not arriving by train, it is well worth a visit.

    More About Belgium

    Belgium is a country in northwest Europe. Founding member of the European Union, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometres and has a population of about 10.7 million. From the end of the Middle Ages until the 17th century, it was a prosperous centre of commerce and culture. Upon its independence, Belgium eagerly participated in the Industrial Revolution and, at the end of the nineteenth century, possessed several colonies in Africa. Today, Belgium's strongly globalized economy and its transportation infrastructure are integrated with the rest of Europe. Its location at the heart of a highly industrialized region helps made it 2007 the world's 15th largest trading nation. Cultural life is nowadays concentrated within each language community and a variety of barriers have made a shared cultural sphere less pronounced. Anyway, the region corresponding to today's Belgium has seen the flourishing of major artistic movements that have had tremendous influence on European art and culture. Text extracted from wikipedia.
