Budapest Keleti Railway Station [Keleti pályaudvar], constructed from 1881 to 1884, is the main railway station in Hungary’s capital Budapest. It is located in Budapest’s neighborhood Istvánmező. In Memories of the Alhambra, this station acts as Barcelona Sants Station’s double together with the Estacio de França Train Station [Estación de Francia] because filming could be done (easier) here. For the night scenes, three of the four central platforms were used and closed down completely from early evening until dawn for filming according to Progressive Productions who supported the Memories of the Alhambra team during their Hungarian shooting. Also, the ticket offices, the newspaper stands, a buffet and a shop were also opened during the shooting and the restaurant of the station provided food for the crew.
