BRUSSELS [5] European Community District

Other Brussels Threads
BRUSSELS [1] Grand Place
BRUSSELS [2] A Walking Tour
BRUSSELS [3] Manneken Pis, Night Life, Street Scenes
BRUSSELS [4] Rooftop Views, Palais de Justice, Palais Royal

Brussels is a city under construction. A lot of the buildings in the old city are being renovated completely from inside out. The EU quarter is not very interesting from an architectural point of view. Unfortunately, since my stay in Brussels was very short, I was not able to make it to the meeting chamber tour, but I snapped some pictures around the main buildings.

























Subway system





Tram interchange



Le Parc du Cinquantenaire was created for the 1880 national exposition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Belgium's independence.

I have no idea. As I was taking photos I saw a parade with a Danish flag and they all posed for a professional photographer to snap a few pictures and with us as well.
