From a center-stage vantage point in the middle of the architecturally magnificent Grand Place, Brussels seems a historic wonderland. Brussels is not only the capital of Belgium but also of the European Union, and as such, is filled with an abundance of museums, galleries, cafe-laced squares and traditional eateries. The bilingual city offers two frontiers of beauty, where the medieval facades of old world architecture meet the modernity of the sleekly-designed Atomium and the suited sternness of businessmen and bureaucrats meet the broad beams of delighted, camera-slinging visitors. Indulge with Belgian beer, tuck into moules-frites and soak up the ambience.
