“IN CITIES WILDLIFE EVOLVES ASTONISHINGLY FAST”

When traveling with trains there is often a certain admiration towards the complexity of their network. Within the frame of these networks, train stations have always been an important factor towards the social and economical evolution of their surrounding areas. Inaugurated in 1904, Larissa station was the largest train station of Greece, connecting the capital with then the northernmost city of the Kingdom of Greece, Larissa. The existence of the station marked a strong development across the area including the erection of various small hotel units as well as an expansion of cottage industry. We have a clear view of the station from our windows.
