Brussels is a 10th-century fortress town founded by a descendant of Charlemagne. Since World War II, Brussels has turned itself into a major place for international politics. It is host to many European Union’s institutions (including being the capital of the EU) and Nato also has its headquarter there.
Dutch and French are the main languages there and both have official status. The proponents of each language have caused much linguistic tensions in Belgium. Brussels is quite cosmopolitan, many other Europeans make up its population.
The architecture is a mix of modern and medieval. It is pleasant to walk around and take in the diversity.
The chocolates and the waffles are ‘must-tries’ when you are in Brussels.
Thank you for visiting, hope you like what I have taken of my trip to Brussels.
