Brussels’ main square, described by Victor Hugo as the most beautiful square in Europe.
He may just be a boy having a wee, but to many he’s the symbol of a nation.
A graceful example of the contribution to art nouveau made by Belgium’s favourite architect.
Sweet, sinful and oh so delicious. The museum dedicated to its development is worth sinking your teeth into.
Beer, glorious beer
Brussels is the city to go for the widest selection of beer.
The currency in Belgium is the euro. A euro is divided into 100 cents. Coins are in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents plus €1 and €2. Notes are available in denominations of €5, €10, €20 and €50. €100, €200 and €500 notes are also issued, but are rarely seen and not widely accepted.
Seasons and Climate
The climate in Brussels is similar to what you might find in the UK: often overcast, damp for much of the winter, yet sunny and bright for long periods during the summer. When summer arrives the thermometer hovers around the mid 20s with occasional heat waves that usually last no longer than a couple of days.
As they live in the heart of northern Europe, and have strong tradition of trade and travel, Belgians exhibit characteristics commonly associated with neighbouring nations – and combine those traits into something truly unique. Belgians are big supporters of the arts, both contemporary and classic. This is not one of those countries whose people will only attend performances of old favourites or historically important plays.
