The city of Brussels
Brussels, Bruxelles in French, is the capital city of Belgium and considered the capital of the European Union. The Kingdom of Belgium has three official languages: Dutch or Flemish, French and German. Brussels is a bi-lingual city, Flemish and French. However, the majority of the populations are native French speakers. Brussels, a popular city trip destination, welcomes about six million tourists per year.
The star attraction in Brussels is Grote Markt or Grand Place, the market square lined with elegant guild houses with beautiful gables and ornate decorations. The Town Hall, Hôtel de Ville, is the most impressive building of all. Manneken Pis, the pissing little man, is an iconic statue, quite small and easy to overlook. The Atomium is Brussels’ best landmark. This 102-metre-tall aluminum structure was built for the 1958 Brussels World Exhibition. Many shopping hotspots make Brussels a Mecca for fashionistas. Be sure to try one or more Belgian traditional dishes; from waffles to French fries and Belgian beer.
