|I've scanned pictures from my travels over the years. You can look at it here.
There are two attractions that you should not miss when you are in Brussels.
The Grand'Place is the heart of Brussels. This historic square is the focal point of the city's social and civic life. The most important ceremonies and festivals are held here.
Within this square, you will be able to see the Royal Palace and the House of Parliament. At the south is the Palace du Grand Sublon and at the north is the Royal Museum of Fine Arts.
Information from Visit Belgium.
* Manneken Pis
A few feet away from the Grand'Place, you will see the famous statue of Belgium: the Manneken Pis. The Manneken Pis is the statue of boy, well, pissing.
No one knows the real story behind this but there are myths. One myth/story is that this kid, in an effort to rid their city of soldiers (there was supposedly a war at that time), peed on the soldiers.
Information from trabel.com.
Pictures of the Grand'Place and Manneken Pis can be found here.
Okay, here I go again.
