Capital of Europe

The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Mon): appreciate the extensive heritage of Ghent City Center, wander the streets of Post Plaza, step into the grandiose world of Gravensteen, then wander the streets of Patershol, then examine the collection at Atomium, and finally pause for some photo ops at Manneken Pis. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the landmark architecture of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule), examine the collection at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), contemplate the long history of Royal Palace of Brussels, then contemplate the long history of Parc du Cinquantenaire, then see the interesting displays at Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, and finally contemplate the long history of Grand Place.
