Facts About Brussels
Information for Travelers
The city of Brussels is the capital of the Kingdom of Belgium.
The Brussels city is the main seat of the Belgian Royal Family and capital of the European Union.
For all its importance, Brussels is a remarkably small, laid-back, human-sized city.
Right in the heart of Brussels' Old Town, the city's main square (known as the Grand Place) is one of the best preserved in Europe.
Much of the square's elegant character is due to the unique architecture of its elegant Gildehuizen (guild houses) with their magnificent gables, pilasters and balustrades, ornate stonework and rich gold decoration.
Unlike beautiful Bruges and Ghent, with their hordes of tourists, Brussels is Belgium's main economic and educational hub.
This is the feature that gives the city a more everyday feel than other cities.
In Brussels you get a proper feel for Belgian life, especially its fantastic culture of restaurants and cafes.
The city has more than enough things to keep visitors busy for a few days, with several world-class museums and art galleries.
In addition to providing the visitor with the most quirky things to do, like the Atomium, and some wonderful remnants of old architecture in the old town district.
