Not everyone knows that, depending on the number of passengers, a private taxi from Brussels airport is cheaper than public transport. The capital of Belgium is a city that always amazes those who visit it. The reason lies in the fact that it is a place rich in history and culture, but it is also the capital of Europe, since it became the seat of the European Parliament. Its 169,000 inhabitants live in a city that stands on seven hills and is one of the most beautiful European capitals. It is mainly a city where both young people and adults can have fun and enjoy their vacation. You can admire the artistic beauties of the capital, but also taste the delicious Belgian chocolate.
What to see in Brussels
Although it is not a huge metropolis, the visitor is spoiled for choice about things to see. Here are some:
- Grand Place: obviously the most important place in Brussels, as well as one of the few European squares without facing a church. It was destroyed by a fire in the seventeenth century and rebuilt in a faithful way to the original. Since 1998 it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. On this square overlook the most important monuments of the city, such as the Town Hall.
- Beer Museum: in it you can find over 1000 different types of beer, and at the end of the route you can taste the exquisite Belgian beer.
- Atomium: a structure present in all the Brussels postcards. This is a steel construction built in 1958, on the occasion of the Universal Exposition.
