The Central Station of Göteborg has a great position in the city center, next to the bus station and a few steps away from Drottningtorget where most of the city trams pass by.
The Central Station of Göteborg opened its doors for the first time in 1858. It is divided between the old original station building, a more modern section with a luxurious hotel, and the central bus station. The first station building, originally designed by architect Adolf Wilhelm Edelsvärd, was built upon the remains of the bastion Johannes Rex, an outwork of the old city defense wall. During the 19th century more than one million Swedes passed the station on their way to the harbor and America. Nowadays 40 000 travelers pass through daily and there are around 190 train departures and an equal amount of arrivals each day.
If you like gambling there’s a small casino in the old part, or you can pass the time either in one of the many restaurants or at an internet café (€2 / hr). All services expected from a highly trafficked station like this one is on offer; foreign currency exchange, luggage storage, showers, ticket service and a wide variety of gift shops and restaurants.

Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window.
