Brussels On The Road - Hostel in Europe
Brussels is more than a 1000 years old and is the bilingual
capital of the Kingdom of Belgium.
Furthermore, it is a cosmopolitan
city where many different cultures live together. Brussels, is
considered to be "The capital of Europe".
The city offers different architectural styles. Gothic cathedrals
and churches, or beautiful art nouveau and art deco houses.
The heart of Brussels is the Grand'Place (Grote Markt). This
historic market square is one of the most beautiful town squares in
Europe, and maybe even in the world
The Sablon is one of the most prestigious and attractive areas in
Brussels. In recent years it has become the center of the antiques
shops and art galleries.
New York has the Statue of Liberty, Copenhagen has the mermaid
and Brussels has the... Manneken Pis. This statue of a little boy
has since several centuries been a major tourist attraction in the
city. When most people see our 'manneken', the first reaction is
always one of amazement: "Look, how small he is ! Why does everybody
want to see him ?" The people of Brussels, however, accept him the
way he is. After all, it doesn't always have to be big to be
beautiful. Imagine he would be the size of the Statue of Liberty :
Brussels would be continuously flooded !
The St. Hubert gallery dates back to the 19th century: it is a
covered shopping gallery. Today the gallery continues to attract a
lot of visitors. There you can find nice luxurious shops (e.g.
chocolate houses, books, boutiques,...) and beautiful cafés. From the
center of the gallery one can also see the famous Beenhouwersstraat/
Rue de Bouchers, which is still a famous restaurant area in Brussels.
