Masaryk railway station in the process of reconstruction (salvaged and restored the original roof)

Masaryk's railway station (Masarykovo nádraží) (Prague)
Praha-Masarykovo nádraží (often abbreviated Mas.n.) is the oldest train station in Prague. It witnessed the arrival of the first train in Prague on August 20, 1845. At present, it is a terminal for suburban trains from Kolín, Kladno and Kralupy nad Vltavou.
The station is named in honor of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the first President of Czechoslovakia (1918-35). During the Communist era, it was called "Praha střed" (Prague center). There are plans to close the station and to bypass it by newly built tracks from Praha Hlavni nadrazi to Holesovice.

Prague stations hiding presidential lounges, of the Austro Hungarian Empire, need to be reconstruct

Thank you, Margaret! After 1989, the devastation continued, now starting to work on the restoration. I added pictures historical lounges at the Prague train stations.
