Description

Brussels is the capital of Belgium and one of the three administrative regions within the country, together with Flanders and Wallonia. Apart from its role within its country, it is also an internationally important city, hosting numerous international institutions, and in particular the core institutions of the European Union. Due to that, it is sometimes referred to informally as the capital of the EU. Brussels is now bi-lingual, hosting and officially recognizing both the Dutch- and French-speaking communities of Belgium, and has become increasingly international with the influx of people of various origin who came there to work, many of them for the European Union. This all makes Brussels a rather unique blend, sprinkled with a number of Belgian peculiarities, and for the inquisitive tourist a large treasure chest to discover.

Brussels Travel Tips & Reviews

Featured Review:

I loved Brussels. It's a must go for me! I haven't really visited outside the city, but from my train ride from Amsterdam, it was gorgeous. People are friendly, the city itself is beautiful with its Art Nouveau facades, and it's the city in Europe I felt the most safe as a solo female traveler. Day or night it's a great place to wander, discover and especially to eat. Do yourself a favor and if you haven't visited, book a ticket!
