Brussels is the capital city of Belgium. It is fascinating and the administrative capital of the European Union. It is a bureaucratic, yet self confident multicultural city to its roots. These contrasts are multilayered, with languages like French alongside Flemish and Eurocrats mixing with a vibrant immigrant population.
Brussels offers a cityscape that goes from the majestic, to quirky and back again. Organic art nouveau facades, contrast against 1960 concrete monoliths and regal 19th century mansions. This clash is the great melting pot that is the European Union’s heart. It is a city of many colours, a medieval core, where the Grand Place is surely one of the world’s most beautiful squares.
