Belgium is located in Western Europe with its 11,3 million citizens and shares its boarders with France, Netherland, Germany and Luxemburg.
Brussels is in many ways Europe’s capital – and at least the EU’s capital – and this is felt in the city with its many different nationalities who are living there.
Musées Royaux des Beaux Arts
The Royal Art Museum is actually four different museums. The two most important are the original museum of ancient art, founded by Napoleon, and the Museum of Modern Art. Together, they offer over 20.000 works dating back to the 1400’s and forth.
Like most other European cities, Brussels is a great place to shop. In addition to the usual branded stores, you can find Belgian chocolates too and other Belgian specialties.
Center Belge de la Bande Dessinée
There are no countries in the entire world that have so many cartoon artists in relation to the population than Belgium. This funny statistic has been chosen to build a museum, where you can see 5000 original drawings which are displayed. Of course, you also have a whole section dedicated to the Belgian cartoon character, Tintin.
Around this square, architectural gems turn up and the ground floor is largely filled up with lots of expensive cafes.
Between March and October, there is a daily flower market and concerts with light shows during the evenings. All in all, a nice place to visit as well.
