When visiting Gdańsk, be sure to visit the Gdańsk Main Railway Station (unless that is where you got off when you arrive), which is one of the prettiest in the country in terms of architectural value. Built in the Neo-Renaissance style at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, it is a monument of the ‘Belle Epoque’ period, as several decades in European history were known until the outbreak of the First World War, during which European art flourished. In its stylistics, the building combines patterns typical of the traditional architecture of old Gdańsk with the details of art nouveau. The entrance to the station hall is dominated by a large glass semicircular window, under which there stretches a stone balustrade, flanked with stone lion statues. The building of the hall is topped with the emblem of the winged ‘Wheel of Fortune’, the historical symbol of the railway. The entire clock tower complex is overshadowed by a clock tower, 48 meters high, crowned with a tin helmet, with four smaller towers in the corners. There are gargoyles in the form of fairy tale dragons coming from the flèche at the top of the helmet. The architecture of the Gdańsk station has also appealed to a certain Japanese businessman who in 1983 decided to build a replica, serving as a wedding palace in the town of Imaria on the island of Kyushu in Japan.
