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. The station is located in downtown Rio de Janeiro, along the Avenida Presidente Vargas and across from the Campo de Santana park.
