With its historical background and beautiful architecture, there are many things to see in Brussels. Here are the places you must see while you’re there.
Grand Palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe. Baroque and Gothic architectural buildings are gathered together on this UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also a nice place to shop, eat, drink and enjoy the city.
Manneken Pis, one of the symbols of Brussels, is a 61 centimeters tall bronze statue. The statue has been stolen many times before. The statue currently residing in the Grand Palace is a copy of the original. The original sculpture is kept in the Museum of the City of Brussels.
The park, with its gardens, ponds, waterfalls, and precious monuments, was built in 1880 to honor the 50th anniversary of Belgium. Here you can have a picnic, go for jogging and hiking, and you can visit the museums within the park, which are the Jubelparkmuseum and Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History.
The building, which was built in 1953 for the Expo World Fair in Brussels, has now become an iconic structure. It is constructed as a one-to-one copy of the iron crystal and the 5 sections of the building are open to visitors. You can enjoy a wonderful panorama of the city, as well as visiting the sections where various exhibitions are held.
The cathedral is thought to be a chapel dedicated to Saint Michael in the 8th century. It was built as a church in the 11th century by the Duke of Brabant Lambert II and has been restored through time and gained its present appearance. It is a good example of Gothic architecture.
