The railway station (stotis) of Vilnius, Lithuania is a little bit outside the city centre and it is quite special. It doesn’t have a modern station building but it feels for me like a more human-friendly station then most ones in western Europe. Inside the building which was once used to unload and store goods there is a bar with sunbeds on the platform – and a giant statue of a men in bathrobe and briefs.

On the other side of the station building you can find a collection of old trains and engines. In daylight it is a railway museum with some very unusual exhibits. But between the trains there are seats and bars – in nighttime this place gets a bar and discotheque. If I every want to be stranded at a railway station – let it be Vilnius.
