The underground area and access for pushchairs/wheelchairs is filled with drunks and drug users. If you get in an elevator hold your breath because it will be covered in urine. Take a scarf soaked in perfume to cover your nose.

Easy to travel and find our train tracks. They had a mall on one side to shop, if need. Very accessible location.

I like this station very much. Clean. Place for smoking. Comfortable. Shops - that is one of the thing I really love there. You can take good things for the price like 10-20 EUR, so the railway station can be considered as shopping mall. I...More
