Zagreb, Croatia -- ...this Olympian Tympanum. The station opened in 1892 and was designed by the national railroad's resident architect, Ferenc Pfaff, who built or remodeled 38 railway stations in the Austria-Hungary area. As is the case here, most of his stations are characterized by a high central section with two wings -- the better to accommodate long platforms which ran parallel to the tracks and make it easy for passengers to exit to the street.
