Long Description:
From the official tourism site:
"Following the fire in 1971, the entire railway station was rebuilt between 1984 and 1991.

The transparent entrance hall of the new station, with its elegant curved roof designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, is architecturally unique. The main portal of the former station, which survived the fire, now stands as an impressive arch in the middle of the square in front of the station."
