There are always many tourists in the capital of the European Union. Travelers are attracted by the special atmosphere of the city, rich architectural heritage, many museums, palaces, cozy cafes, and just beautiful places. 1001guide recommends starting your acquaintance with Brussels with a sightseeing excursion with a English-speaking guide.
Most excursions start from Grand Place. This is no coincidence since Victor Hugo considered the central square of Brussels to be the most beautiful square in Europe. The Grand Place has been in existence for the ninth century; any of the buildings surrounding it deserves attention.
The Town Hall is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. This late Gothic masterpiece looks surprisingly light and graceful.
The new area called the Mountain of Arts is also worth a visit. It appeared in the middle of the last century on the site of a wasteland; today it is the cultural center of the capital with observation decks, parks and museums.
