Essentials in Brussels
History: The historic part of Brussels is over 1000 years old, putting a lot of history on one’s plate in just one day. The historic centre is made up of a number of concentric ring roads. In the middle of the central ring you’ll find the city’s most famous sights including the Porte de Hal, the place de la Chapelle, Palais de Justice and the basilica. If you have a few days spend one in the historic centre and then the rest of your holiday in Brussels discovering the uptown squares and museums.
Gastronomy: Brussels is known for a few things besides being the capital of Europe. It excels at waffles, chocolate, French fries, Brussels sprouts, and of course a number of different types of beer.
Like a local: Originally Dutch speaking, now French is what the street talks but there is some tension on the subject. This city is a place where split personalities thrive. The locals are casual and enjoy themselves in outdoor patios when the weather is warm.
