Budapest Nyugati Station Roof To Be Restored
State railway company MÁV has invited bids for the restoration of the roof and the metal-glass structure of the Nyugati train station in Budapest.

The condition of the roof is critical and it leaks.

The station designed by France’s Gustave Eiffel architecture office opened in 1877.

MÁV has EU funds for the restoration of the Keleti and Nyugati stations, chairman and CEO Róbert Homolya said earlier.

The historic hall of Nyugati station will be closed for six months during restoration work.
