Brussels, Belgium

Brussels is the capital city of Belgium and of Brussels Capital Region. Plenty of things you can see here like:
Grand Place, surrounded by the city tower and a range of beautiful 300 year old buildings. In the evening, surrounded by bright lumination, it is simply ravishing. Some evenings a music and light show is provided with the buildings serving as a canvas. Just a short walk from the Grand Place-Grote Markt is the Manneken Pis, a small bronze statue thought to represent the “irreverent spirit” of Brussels. This statue of a child performing one of Nature’s most basic functions. Belgians have created hundreds of outfits for this statue.

Definitely check out the Arc de Triomphe-Triomfboog on the east side of town. It’s in the Parc du Cinquantenaire-Jubelpark. It is possible to go up to the terrasse above the arch, from where you’ll have a good view of the city. Entry is through the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History and is free.

Don’t forget the Atomium, an unavoidable icon of Brussels and Belgium, important place for international tourism, unique creation in the history of architecture.

Definitely a lovely city, and you won’t regret visiting it.
