Dunedin Railway Station is celebrating another major international accolade.

The century old building has been named by US travel magazine Conde Nast as one of the 16 most beautiful stations in the world.

Built in Flemish Renaissance style, its elegant interior plays host to the annual iD fashion awards.

American Tourist Sherwin Kaplan said: "The symmetry of it, the construction of it, the colour, its a very very nice building, all I could wish for would be a bright blue sky in back of it."

The station has previously been hailed as one of 200 "must-see" places around the world.
