Favorite thing: <CENTER><font color = red><b>visit the Atomium.</b></font color = red></CENTER>
<CENTER>The Atomium is the most original monument in Belgium.</CENTER>
<CENTER>A <font color = blue>symbol</font color = blue> of the <font color = blue>spirit of science</font color = blue> commemorated during the <font color = blue>Universal Exhibition of 1958</font color = blue>, it depicts an <font color = blue>iron molecule</font color = blue> that has been <font color = blue>magnified 165 billion times</font color = blue>.</CENTER>
<CENTER>Its perfect form has made it a <font color = blue>collector?s item</font color = blue> that is reproduced all over the world in everything up to and including <font color = blue>Venetian glass</font color = blue>.</CENTER>
<CENTER><font color = green>For those with a head for heights, a lift climbs 100 meter and provides direct access to the structure?s uppermost sphere. From here, you can enjoy a view across the entire Centenaire complex and beyond.</font color = green></CENTER>
