Here are some detailed photos from the Sirkeci terminal, where we once got on board the train for an Interrail trip across Europe, when we were 20 years old. The terminal station designed by the German architect, August Jasmund (1889-90) was the last stop of the famous Orient Express. I find it to be a beautiful example of Art Nouveau style with an Oriental twist in the city. It is currently closed to the public due to ongoing restoration.
