Lovely thread of Brussels...lovely pics

I went there a month ago, unfortunately in Brussels i just went to the Grand Place and to the European Union. Oh and to Delirium Cafe
I visited Antwerp (i loved Antwerp ), Brugge and Gent too.

Lovely country. To be honest i niver thought that Belgium is soo beautiful! Worth a second visit...and a third one...and a fourth...

Well, it probably is the sight you have to see, if you only have an afternoon, or so.
But you will miss out on a lot.

I agree that Antwerp, Gent and Bruges are cities that you should see when you are in Belgium but Brussels is my favourite one.

It is the city of contrasts. It is so international and the pulse in the city is great. Brussels also feels so much bigger than it really is!

Yes indeed.
I think Brussels is one of the most underrated capitals in Europe.
Great parcs, fantasticc monuments, lovely historical neighbourhoods and architecture, splendid museums, fine festivals and the best beers and resto's on the old continent
