Parc du Cinquantenaire - Parc Jubel, Brussels: 56 reviews and 78 photos
This monument was erected to mark the 50th anniversary of Belgium?s independence from the Netherlands. The structure rears 144 feet high at the head of Avenue de Tervuren and is topped by a bronze chariot being ridden by the female personification of a triumphant Belgium, arms up in the air. Adding to the arch?s drama are the multi-columned Royal Museum of Art and History and the Royal Museum of Army and Military History the king had erected on either side, with the 90-acre Jubilee Park forming a verdant backdrop for all three.
