אתר לאומי - מתחם תחנת הרכבת התורכית באר שבע
תחנת הרכבת התורכית נבנתה בשנת 1915, במהלך מלחמת העולם הראשונה, כתחנה ראשית במסגרת תכנון גרמני-תורכי לסלילת מסילה המקשרת את דמשק עם מצרים, לניוד כוחות צבא לחזית הדרום.
ממתחם התחנה נותרו כיום, מגדל המים לקטרים, הנמצא דרומית לתחנה בתוך שכונת מגורים ושני מחסני הרכבת, אחד משמש כבית קצין העיר והשני שימש בעבר מחנה צבאי. שיקום המבנים, כלל עבודות ייצוב וחיזוק עם חומרים וטכנולוגיות אותנטיות ומותאמות לבנייה העות’מאנית המקורית.
התחנה שוקמה על ידי עיריית באר שבע ורכבת ישראל, והינה מתחם חוויתי, תרבותי ותיירותי המציע מגוון פעילויות תרבות, אמנות ופנאי. התחנה הוכרזה כאתר לאומי בשנת 1991.

NATIONAL SITE TURKISH RAILWAY STATION COMPLEX IN BEER SHEVA
The Turkish railway station was built in 1915, during WWI, as an important station in the framework of German-Turkish plans for a railway line connecting Damascus with Egypt. All that now remains of the complex are a water tower for the locomotives, and two railway warehouses.
The Beer Sheva municipality and Israel Railways have reconstructed the station as an experiential, cultural, and tourist site offering a variety of cultural, artistic, and leisure activities.
The station was declared a national site in 1991.
