This series tells the epic story of five European railway stations: St Pancras in London, Gare de Lyon in Paris, Antwerpen Centraal, Budapest’s West Station and the Stazione Centrale in Milano are the main protagonists of each of the episodes. We discover these Cathedrals of the Industrial Age in their present and history combining human stories with architecture, past and contemporary stories. Blending the own dynamics of the place and a “fin de siècle” steam punk look, the series looks behind the facade and is an invitation to discover places, which are usually overlooked by busy travellers.
