Brussels is the capital city of Belgium and is the perfect place to begin your visit to the country. In fact, as well as being the national capital, Brussels hosts the administration headquarters for many departments of the European Union. A great place to begin your exploration of the city is the Grand Place/Grote Markt, which is a central gathering place. It’s beautifully lit-up in the evenings and is surrounded by splendid architecture like the City Tower. Road signs are in both French and Flemish, representing the bilingual nature of the country, although you will also find that nearly everyone speaks English and often other languages as well in this international melting pot.
Typical food and drink in Belgium
Without question, Belgium’s most popular food is the delightful combination of fresh and juicy mussels and crunchy, salty French fries that is Moules Frites. And this, of course, is best enjoyed in combination with one of Belgium’s impressive selection of rich and fruity beers, many of which are brewed by Trappist monks.
