Gara de Nord


Gara de Nord

Gara de Nord Bucureşti ("North Station" in English) is the main railway station in Bucharest and the largest railway station in Romania. The vast majority of mainline trains to/from Bucharest originate from Gara de Nord.

History

It was initially named "Gara Târgoviştei", after the road nearby, "Calea Târgoviştei" ("Târgovişte Road", nowadays "Calea Griviţei").

The first railways between Roman - Galaţi - Bucharest - Piteşti were built in 1872.

The station and its surroundings were heavily bombed by the Allies in April 1944 during a campaign aimed at the German supply lines, since the station played an important part in the Romanian railway network.

Current status

Currently there are 14 lines and 8 platforms.

As of 2008, "Gara de Nord" served about 200 trains, including domestic trains operated by Căile Ferate Române as well as international trains to Hungary - Budapest, Bulgaria - Sofia, Varna, Republic of Moldova - Chişinău, Ukraine - Kiev, Lvov, Chernivtsi, Serbia - Belgrade, Austria - Vienna, Italy - Venice, Germany - Munich, Czech Republic - Prague, Slovakia - Bratislava, Poland - Kraków, Greece - Athens, Thessaloniki, Turkey - Istanbul, Russia - Moscow.

The station is served by several bus lines as well as the Gara de Nord metro station.
