Hall of the Main Railway Station in Wroclaw.
The Main Railway Station in Wroclaw is the biggest railway station of Lower Silesia, located at the junction of several important routes. The first station was built in 1841-1842, it was a small complex of buildings with only one platform.
Current station was built in in 1855 - 1857, it had one platform, but the platform hall was about 200 metres long, and it was regarded as one of the biggest structures of this kind in Europe. In 1899, the construction of five new platforms began, four of them covered by a large roof. At the turn of the 19th and 20th century railway station was rebuilt and expanded, with the growing railway the station was becoming increasingly important. In 2010 - 2012 the station was completely renovated and modernized.

Great angle and symmetry, undoubtedly the eye is drawn to colours and the geometrical shapes of the hall sweeping all the way down into the entrance and that's where strength of this picture lies. Excellent observations, simply beautiful indoor shot and those crowds are as usual a great focal. Excellent well exposed work and u have done well to convey the atmosphere. Well done

A good DOF effect when looking at the image, Ryszard.
RR stations always an intriguing subject, besides looking at train, there are places with special archi.-style and design.
Here, the roof is catching most attention of the viewer - looks as made of wooden decorative boards.
People gave life to the scene, and scale.
