Watching the trains from Gare de l’Est

Gare de l'est

Watching the trains of the railway station Gare de l’Est is to remember that Louis Napoleon Bonaparte inaugurated the station in 1850 to ensure a connection with the city of Strasbourg.
Scarcely thirty years later, the first Orient-Express left the eastern station for Constantinople.

Wars at Gare de l’Est

Millions of soldiers went through the two wars of 14-18 and 39-45 to join the eastern fronts, not to mention workers deported to compulsory labor in Germany.
It is good to look at lines of trains, it is to leave a little bit each time you hold your head over one of the palisades.GARE DE L'EST
