The oldest railway station in Prague has recently been discussed mostly in connection with its revitalization; the plan is to build a business-administrative development here according to the design of a renowned architect Zaha Hadid. Take this unique opportunity to see the lounge with its beamed ceiling and majestic fireplace created in the 1870s for Emperor Franz Joseph I and later adapted for the needs of the first Czech President T. G. Masaryk, who departed from here on his journeys with his parlour coach. Such a pleasant waiting room would take the sting out of any delay.
