Three times in four days in the Netherlands, I ran to Amsterdam Central Station. I was very impressed and always wanted to match Harry Potter's 9-and-quarter platform, which was very retro European.
We were able to take a tour of the city of Amsterdam on a business trip to Amsterdam in May 2004, and after visiting clients on Saturday. Since we were staying near Amsterdam Central Railway Station, we visited the first stop. As an important transportation hub in Amsterdam, it is bound to pass through the central railway station. The two "towers" on both sides of the entrance to the central railway station are the signs, and the right side of the tower is the bell tower when facing the railway station, and the left side of the tower is always the wind vane in the upper and lower direction. This is one of the characteristics of the Netherlands, for the Dutch who often sail, windmills, and deal with the wind, knowing the direction of the wind is as important as knowing the time.
Amsterdam train station is famous in Shenyang because a foreign investment in Shenyang built a Dutch village, all of which are imitated Dutch architecture, the Dutch village in the early days of construction, was once a major attraction for Shenyang especially nearby residents to play and walk. The main building of the park is Amsterdam Railway Station, so the image of the railway station has long been printed in the minds of many Shenyang people. This time I saw the real Amsterdam Railway Station, I found that the replica of the Dutch Village in Shenyang is really realistic.
Street performers perform in front of the train station to take pictures with tourists.
Dutch wooden shoes are a major feature product, now a very special tourist souvenir, there is a shop front with large wooden shoes to attract customers, children can enter the wooden shoes play, photograph, the store has a variety of wooden shoes souvenirs, The main color is red and yellow.
The Dutch landmark windmills are everywhere...
Simply a very beautiful train station. It has an authentic Dutch building style, with amazing view looking at the canal where you can embark for the canal tour. The station itself is very big, but do not worry, you won’t get lost, as the signs are very clear and the people there will always be ready to help you :)
The day was a day to take the train to The Hague, made a pre-trained strategy, but to the train station was still a busy network of traffic, because to buy tickets on self-service equipment, had to ask a handsome Dutch man to do.
As the train left, he picked up his mobile phone and took a few photos, and suddenly realized that the railway station was actually a real attraction. The European style railway station is a very special place.
The train station gives me the impression of being in a European movie, with a high ceiling and a sharp train but the interior seats are obviously different from what they were before.
