Paris Gare de Lyon Station Detail

The Paris Lyon Train Station was built for the World Exposition of 1900. The architecture used in the construction of the Gare de Lyon is a classic example of the architecture of that time period. Despite the classic architecture, the station has been modernized to accommodate the high-speed TGV trains that whisk travelers throughout France.
