The (political) capital of Europe

Brussels is one of those underrated cities that sometimes even sound boring. I admit I was at fault in thinking that there's not much to see or do in this laid back capital, and the fact that I didn't find any tourist guide that enhanced the positives of this city didn't help me much either.

Due to a great flight deal, we came to the political capital of Europe and home of the NATO headquarters. A city (and country) famous for chocolate, beer and comic strips, divided or united by language (it depends on who you ask).

    Hi Mariel, I'm glad you liked the Musical Instrument Museum. I go to those all over Europe, and the one in Brussels is definitely one of the best (and newest).

    Great page about our EU capital, Mariel. I didn't know that Manneken Pis got female competition. But being in front of Delirium Bar explains her behaviour ;o))
