Founded in the 13th century, Brussels Plaza is called "the most beautiful square in the world" by Hugo Dawenhao. The square is the center of the capital Brussels. It is surrounded by the city hall of Brussels. There are also famous buildings such as the 17th century professional guild, the Duke's residence, the medieval stone buildings, the Palace of Louis XIV and so on. The Brussels Museum of Urban History was rebuilt from 1873 to 1895 in the original gorgeous style of the 16th century. These houses are often named after their favorite objects according to their decorative features. Roof 7 is a fox and there is a Golden Fox above the entrance. Victor Hugo lives in Pigeon 26. Golden Tree No. 10 is a statue of a knight. No. 5 of the Sagittarius Guild is a wolf. Above the door is a picture of the wolf feeding Romlus and Les. The top of the gable is a symbol of Brussels's regeneration - "a giant golden phoenix. The bronze sculpture of the angel Chang Sheng Michael, who stepped on Satan five meters high on the top of the tower, was used as a wind pointer. More than 100 statues were on the arch, all of which were reproduced in the original works of the 19th century. The entrance of the city hall is not in the middle, and the tower is slightly off the side. In fact, the reason why the hall tower and the gate are not in the center is that the whole building was built in three different periods, so the present scale appears. In addition, the square is surrounded by various professional guild sites in the 17th century, Duke residences, medieval stone buildings, Louis XIV palace and other well-known buildings. On the side of Golden Tree No. 10 is a five-storey building, the famous Swan Cafe. Many people will sit here for a while and have a drink. It used to be the place where Marx and Engels lived and worked. It is adjacent to the famous city hall. It is named for a flying white swan on the door. In February 1845, Marx moved from Paris to Brussels to live here. Live. In April of the same year, Engels also moved from Paris. Since then, Swan Cafe has become an important place for them to co-create the Communist Communications Commission and the German Workers'Association. During this period, Marx wrote famous works such as "Philosophical Poverty" and "Manifesto". Now Swan Cafe is also called Swan Restaurant. Victor Hugo's apartment is on the left of Swan Restaurant. There is also a nearby building, formerly the Palace of Louis XIV in France, which is now a museum.
Gran Place is located in the centre of Brussels. If you take the subway, you can get off the central railway station and walk about 400 meters. This is the centre of Brussels. When there are so many people, there are singers and acrobats around. The real square part is rectangular, and its edges are very famous ancient buildings, except one, the others are more or less gold-plated, it looks noble, the external walls are carved with a variety of characters, the level of architecture at that time can be seen. Square is a small rectangular stone brick floor, so it is quite wear-resistant, many people can not tread on it, the tourist groups in the square are particularly many, but today I have bad luck, did not encounter the Chinese group, otherwise you can eavesdrop on the guide's explanation. This place is free! One of the must-see attractions to Brussels.
Brussels, as the capital of Belgium and the European Union as a whole, has not many places of interest for tourists, but there is one place that people have never been to yearn for, and those who have gone do not want to leave. That is Brussels Plaza in the city centre. This small square, however, is a unique square that does not need to be climbed. It is "the most beautiful square in Europe". Brussels Plaza is the central square of Brussels, the capital of Belgium and Western Europe. In 1998, UNESCO listed Brussels Plaza as a World Heritage Site. It has always been a place for important events in Brussels. It is praised by Hugo Cheng as the most beautiful square in the world.
Located in downtown Brussels Plaza, built in the 12th century, surrounded by Gothic buildings. The ground of the square is paved with granite. The simple style and bright pictures show the cultural characteristics of the city. Most of the buildings around the square are Gothic, Renaissance, Louis XIV and other architectural forms built in the Middle Ages. Their architectural styles are different, which makes people feel as if they were in the Middle Ages. For a long time, the Grand Square was the place where important events were held in Brussels, where the emperors and kings offered sacrifices. In 1998, UNESCO listed Brussels Plaza as a cultural heritage on the World Heritage List. I believe all visitors to Brussels will come here. There is a strong sense of history, there are well-known buildings such as the City Hall, King's Building, Swan Cafe..., known as "the most beautiful square in the world" by Hugo Dawenhao.
There is an information centre in the square. If the hotel does not provide a map, you can use Euro 1 to buy a more comprehensive map at the information centre. There are different shops and scenic spots along several streets in different directions of the square. One leads to Ding Ding's wall, the other is a place where all chocolates are sold. Our local Belgian friends told us to buy Galler, Neuhaus, Cote D or instead of leonidas. I prefer Neuhaus to my own taste. Truffle chocolate is recommended.
Brussels Plaza is not only a famous world cultural heritage, but also the heart of the city. Victor Hugo, a French literary hero, praised this place as "the most beautiful square in the world" and lived in a room on the second floor opposite the public administration hall of the square. The famous Swan Cafe was also the place where Marx lived. The big square was crowded with people, and the festival atmosphere was strong, warming the chill in the air.
In the middle of Europe, there is a small country whose area is only equal to Zhejiang Province, which is the beautiful kingdom of Belgium. In Brussels, the capital of the Kingdom of Belgium, there is a large square surrounded by buildings. There is the Brussels City Hall, but more buildings are the guilds of various industries in Brussels.
One of the landmark attractions is that the center of the old city is closer to the central railway station, but in fact, the square buildings surrounded by many buildings in the old city are really beautiful! It's worth observing carefully. People who take pictures don't say much about taking pictures directly.
If the Plaza in Brussels can only be summed up in one word, I will choose to be brilliant. At the beginning of the lantern, the big square was crowded with people, which was more lively than the heavenly dynasty. The Heavenly Aunt League contributed a lot to this. Looking at it, this is Brussels, which is Shanghai Nanjing road pedestrian street. Madames come with gold bags, adding a lot of gold to the magnificent square. Looking back on the golden age of the Netherlands, when they were building these buildings, would they think that they would become another country today, they were just paying for others?
