The Gare du Nord (pronounced [ɡaʁ dy nɔːʁ]; English: North Station), officially Paris-Nord, is one of the seven large mainline railway station in Paris, France. It is for the trains that run between the capital and northern France via the Paris–Lille railway, and to Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. It is in the northern part of Paris near the Gare de l'Est in the 10th arrondissement. There are several urban transport lines, including Paris Métro, the Réseau Express Régional and buses. The most of its passengers are commuters travelling between the northern suburbs of Paris and towns. It is the busiest railway station in Europe by total passenger numbers; in 2015 there were more than 700,000 passengers per day.[1]

The first station on the site was started in 1846. The present building was opened in 1864, and it is being developed and made bigger.
