Athens Railway Station

Inaugurated on 29 June 1904, the station was named after the city of Larissa, as the southern terminal of the line to the Thessalian city and Thessaloniki.

Athens Railway Station is the main railway station of Athens, the capital city of Greece. It is located in the central quarter of Kolonos. It resulted from the merger of the city’s two main railway terminals, the Larissa Station of the Piraeus–Platy railway line towards central and northern Greece, and of the Peloponnese Station  of the Piraeus–Patras railway line linking Athens with the southern Peloponnese peninsula. The station is still colloquially known as “Larissa Station”, which is also the name of a Metro station there.
