Central do Brasil (Portuguese pronunciation: [sẽˈtɾaw du bɾaˈziw]) is the most important train station in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. It is the last stop of Rio's railway network, as well as a hub for connection with the city subway and a bus station. Central do Brasil is also a preeminent stop in the inter-state Central do Brasil railroad, which links Rio de Janeiro with São Paulo and Minas Gerais, though the railroad is now practically deactivated.
