Keleti pályaudvar or Eastern Railway Station is the largest railway station in Budapest. It can be found in the 8th district (Józsefváros), on Baross Square.

The building was constructed in eclectic style between 1881 and 1884 and was one of the modernest railway stations of Europe in that time. It was planned by Gyula Rochlitz and János Feketeházy. The station's length is 93 m, the platform length is 80 m, underground depth is 14 m.

Keleti pályaudvar is also a station of the M2 (East-West) line of the Budapest Metro and from about 2009 on, it will be a station of the M4 line, too.

It is also planned that fast train service would connect this railway station with the Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, maybe from 2007 on. The fact that the majority of Intercity services (36 out of 53) arrive at this railway station makes this decision more probable.
