MEETING AT ORIENT EXPRESS
Once the last stop on the Orient Express, the grand Train Station was rail hub between Istanbul and Europe. Located just inland of the confluence of the Golden Horn and the mighty Bosphorus, the station is itself a kind of coming together – of different peoples, geographies as well as architectural styles. Its designers elaborated on Istanbul’s “neither East nor West” by incorporating both Oriental and European elements; its banded brick exterior and wide stone portal are characteristically Seljuk, while the soaring clock towers evoke an Austrian or Parisian aesthetic. Construction was completed in 1890.
