Brussels has the most beautiful central market square in all of Europe in my opinion.

Brussel looks like it was built to be a continental capital!

In the shadow of the Palace of Justice lies the Marolles, once an old and poor working-class quarter, now a trendy and popular neighbourhood with intimate bars and restaurants, antique and design shops. At sunday there's a fantastic flee market at the Vossenplein.
In the Hoogstraat the painter Pieter Breughel lived and died, and the world famous jazz-musician Toots Tielemans was born in the same street.

Thanks again!
More Brussels photo's.
The Parc Du Cinquantenaire is situated in the east of Brussels, near the EU-quarter. It's best known for its excellent museums like the Museum of Art and History, The Military Museum (with splendid airplane collection) and Autoworld, one of the biggest old-timer collections in Europe.

In the park you'll also find Belgiums Big Mosque and at the edge there's the well known Berlaymont-building, home of the European Commision.

The residential area around the parc is a threasery of belle epoque and art nouveau.
