About Brussels

While Brussels may be important due to its role as center of the European Union, beer aficionados and chocoholics might wish to differ as to Brussels' main attraction. With its location a mix of Romance- and Germanic-speaking folks, Brussels is at the bilingual crossroads of the Flemish north and French south. While the city has been overshadowed by its more flamboyant neighboring capitals, the ancient streets, outdoor cafes and Grand Place square, with its statuesque buildings best seen illuminated at night, woo visitors who like a quieter pace. Art lovers would enjoy the Musées Royaux does Beaux Arts de Belgique, which houses masterpieces from Pieter Bruegel, van Dyck and Rubens; Autoworld, with vehicles dating to the dawn of the combustion age; and the Musical Instruments Museum, with its 1500 international and historical pieces. A fantastic landmark to see and eat dinner on is the Atomium, a massive structure made of gigantic spheres and connecting rods. Over a dozen city center hotel means you're never too far from the action.

Statue/Sculpture
The Manneken Pis is a place that visitors to Brussels must visit. The image of this cute child who is peeing is made of bronze. It is located at the corner of Wenquan Street and Oak Street in the downtown area. It is filled with tourists all the year round. The peeing boy is deeply loved by the people of the world. Since the French King Louis XV sent him a set of clothes, the heads of state visiting Belgium will send him a set of traditional national costumes. Now it has become a practice.

St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral is a Gothic cathedral. The church was built in 1047 and was built on the original St. Michel Chapel. The grand expansion of the church began in 1226 and lasted for two and a half centuries. The St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral is not too complex, it retains the simple lines of Gothic architecture and is very atmospheric. There are two symmetrical towers on the façade of the church, using a rare flame-style Gothic style with simple and sturdy reliefs.
