To some travellers the stations of Macedonia under the Ottoman Empire were "filthy shacks", where the only refreshment available was a cup of ground barley drink, a poor imitation of coffee, accompanied by a dirty glass of water. Conversely, others found the stations of Baron Hirsch's Anatolian Railways to be models of order and cleanliness.
