Belgium’s irreverent capital
Quirkily contradictory: not what the average tourist might expect of the EU's and Belgium capital until they catch a flight to the city of Brussels! Brussels is a chocolate-dipped enigma in the heart of Belgium, complete with fine food, surrealism and some zany things to do. Best of all, thanks to its small size, tourists can discover other charming Belgium cities by making day trips from Brussels to Bruges, Ghent, Liège, Antwerp, and many more! The Grand-Place, Brussels’ fairytale-like square surrounded by Baroque, Neo-Gothic, and other flamboyant buildings, is a must-see! Other popular attractions in Brussels include the Royal Palace of Brussels, the Belgian Royal Museum of Fine Arts, the Mont des Arts, and the Place du Châtelain Market.
