My visit in Brussels,Belgium is one of my shortest visit ever.I have been in Brussels for 2 days and in 2 days I tried to visit as much as possible,just to explore the city a little bit.
I loved Brussels since I saw it for the first time. It is an amazing city and everyone who visit or has visited this city it still amazed. The people in the city are very welcoming people and they will help you for everything you need.Brussels, capital of Belgium, principal seat of the Belgian Royal Family, and capital of the European Union, is a remarkably small, easy-going, and human-sized city for all its importance. Unlike beautiful Ghent, with their hordes of tourists, Brussels is Belgium’s main economic and educational hub, which gives the city a more workaday feel than other towns.
My first place to visit in Brussels was Atomium, the Atomium is Brussels best-known landmark, and although it’s a bit of a journey by tram to get out here, the bizarre 102-meter-high steel and aluminium structure, designed by the architect André Waterkeyn for the 1958 Brussels World Exhibition, is the city’s most surreal sight. The building represents a molecule of iron magnified 165 million times, and visitors may enter the interior where four of the nine spheres are now used for the presentation of a show about human life called Biogenium.
Second place I visited in Brussels was the Place Royale Koningsplein.The most important building on this square is the Royal Palace (Palais Royal) used by the Belgian royal family as an official residence.The Palais des Académies, home of the Royal Academy of Sciences and once the residence of the Crown Prince of Orange, and the Palais des Beaux-Arts Paleis voor Schone Kunste on the west side of the plaza, designed and built in the 1920s by Victor Horta, are two of the finest examples.
Third place I visited in Brussels was Belgian Royal Museum of Fine Arts.Belgium’s Royal Museum of Fine Arts (1875-81) is one of the largest and best art galleries in the world. The museum grew out of a collection first set up in 1797 and was originally housed in the former palace of Charles of Lorraine. I was so amazed about the art there it was a wonderful experience for me.
My last visit in Brussels was at Grand Place.Right in the heart of Brussels Old Town, the city’s main plaza (known as Grand Place) is one of the best preserved in Europe. Much of the square’s elegant character is due to the unique architecture of its elegant Gildehuizen guild houses with their magnificent gables, pilasters, and balustrades, ornately carved stonework, and rich gold decoration. Most were built between 1696 and 1700 in the Baroque style but with some Flemish influences. The history of the Grand Place dates back much earlier though. It was first established in the 11th century and evolved soon after, to become the political and economic center for the city.
As I said my visit in Brussels was really short and I didn’t have time to visit all the best places in this city, but I think I will go back in this city for another visit.The places in Brussels are incredible and also the people who live in Brussels are friendly.
