Yes indeed !

I especially love the graffiti art everywhere, it's like the city is one big piece of art.
It makes the city so unique.

Very interesting city

That big horn, it really works?

When i get to Brussels, i'll go to the big horn and say "Hell... today it is a Sun of a Beach!" The cops probably chase me. Central Europe is "all correct and meticulous"

It's right in the city center. West of the 'Bourse' and the 'Grand Place'.
It's not a very important, old or beautiful church. But it's a very nice end lively neighbourhood.
