Paris Train Stations

The Paris Nord Train Station was originally built in 1846. Shortly after, it was rebuilt three times larger due to increasing traffic. The new and improved station was fully functional by 1864. The name was decided with the notion that travelers would be able to travel to Belgium, Netherlands, Northern Germany and the Scandinavian countries. And of course that is just what happened, and with the ever-growing high-speed rail network, more and more destinations are reachable from the Gare du Nord.
