Brussels – a quirky, offbeat capital

Brussels is the capital of Belgium, the capital of Europe, and a city of culture and gentle hedonism. Surrounding the city’s major set piece, the Grand'Place, a visitor to Brussels will find the finest restaurants, endearing bars, some of the world’s finest works of art, and astounding architecture. However, the vibe here is laissez-faire; so relax, go with the flow and let Brussels slowly soak into your spirit.
