“Athens Railway Station (Greek: Sidirodromikós Stathmós Athinón) is the main railway station of Athens, the capital city of Greece. It is located in the central quarter of Kolonos. It resulted from the merger of the city's two main railway terminals, the Larissa Station of the Piraeus–Platy railway line towards central and northern Greece, and of the Peloponnese Station (Greek:Stathmós Peloponnísou) of the Piraeus–Patras railway line linking Athens with the southern Peloponnese peninsula. The station is still colloquially known as "Larissa Station", which is also the name of a Metro station there. ”
