Part Flemish, part French, part historic, and part modern – the capital city of Belgium is an exciting mix of contradictions. In the main city square, the Grand Place, you’ll find cafes and historic buildings from the city’s storied past. Or, head to the Musee Royaux d’Art d’Histoire where you can view a diverse array of art from Egypt to Meso-America.
Have something simpler in mind? Visit the famous Manneken Pis, a statue of a boy peeing who has become a national symbol for Belgium. He’s often clothed in relation to a national holiday or anniversary.
