Gare Du Nord & Gare De L'Est: 10e

FRANCE PARIS Paris gare du nord

Gare du Nord and Gare de L’Est are two of the largest train terminals in Paris and are known for serving other parts of Europe as well; such as Belgium, Germany and Britain. Gare du Nord (North Station) was opened in 1864 and like many buildings in Paris, has an artistic side- its cornices are lined with sculptures that represent the various destinations that the station serves. This bustling train terminal, due to its sheer size and structure, has been featured in many films like The Bourne Identity and Ocean’s Twelve. Gare de L’Est (East Station) is one of the oldest stations in Paris. Opened in 1849, this station also features statues representing the destinations it serves (e.g. Verdun and Strasbourg).
