St. Pancras International Railway Station

⬅️⬅️⬅️ One of the gazillion things I love about Europe is their railway stations.
This mind blowing Victorian style building is the famous St. Pancras International Railway station in London. The station has shops, bars, restaurants, public toilets, and is also home to Europe's longest champagne bar!

It's a nineteenth-century station delivering a twenty-first century regional, intercity, continental and high-speed railway. I was mesmerized by its grandeur while sitting by the window at our hostel room. What a beauty!

According to St Pancras Station was opened in 1868 and is one of the wonders of Victorian engineering. Along with the former Midland Grand Hotel, it is a masterpiece of Victorian Gothic Architecture and one of the most elegant stations in the World. It has recently been refurbished to accommodate international train services; its history is a remarkable tale of decay, restoration and spectacular rebirth.
