Template:Infobox station Bucharest North railway station (Template:Lang-ro) is the main railway station in Bucharest and the largest railway station in Romania. The vast majority of mainline trains to and from Bucharest originate from Gara de Nord.

History

It was initially named Gara Târgovi?tei, after the road nearby, Calea Târgovi?tei ("Târgovi?te Road", nowadays Calea Grivi?ei).

The first railways between Roman - Gala?i - Bucharest - Pite?ti were built in 1872.

The station and its surroundings were heavily bombed by the Allies in April 1944 during a campaign aimed at the German supply lines, since the station played an important part in the Romanian railway network and was the main departure point for troops headed to the Eastern Front.
