Brussels Overview

Brussels, capital of the kingdom of Belgium, is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. About 31 % of its 1 million of inhabitants are foreigners, most of them are either Islamic immigrants or civil servants, expat business people and diplomats working for the European Union, NATO, or one of the many other multinational institutions or firms that are located there. This makes for a unique atmosphere in which cultures interact easily with one another. The city is officially bilingual (all official announcements and street names are in French and in Dutch),

It is difficult to understand Belgium. It is a small country but was never too cohesive. There is permanently always a threat of a disintegration into two parts - southern with francophone Waloons and northern part with Dutch speaking Flemings. Already now these both regions live by their own life. Waloons and Flemings have their own TV stations, books, newspapers, they have different schools, study from different curriculums and also they vote their own politicians... I can recommend tourists to visit Brugges. It is our "Venice" - a very romantic city. Then also Gent and Antwerp are very nice cities, more interesting then Brussels.

It looks that the Belgians are obsessed with peeing statues :-). There are already three! To see a statue of Manneken Pis (peeing naked boy) is a must when you visit a Brussels. It was created in 1619 and it is the most famous symbol of the city. But did you know that you can find in Brussels also a statue of a peeing girl and peeing dog? The name of a girl is Jeanneke Pis and was created 1985 when the feministic movement got it through the Parliament. The third peeing statue (dog) - Zinneke Pis was unvelied in 1998.

Which food can you have in Brussels? If you are in a hurry you can buy chips with meat balls. Stalls with this type of fast food are everywhere. And drink? Belgians say that they have the most types of beers in the world. Probably it is true... but will you like e.g. cherry beer? Raspberry beer? I don´t think that a real beer lover will appreciate it. But e.g. white beer or stronger types of beer are very good! And desserts? Of course, chocolate! Belgians are famous by their chocolate like Swiss. They started a production in 17th century when the country was under rule of Spain. Right Spanish brought to Belgium a chocolate. The most famous chocolate factories are Godiva, Leonidas and Neuhaus.

The first thing in mind when you hear the brussels is chocolate and beers. They're have the best chocolates and known by its lambic style of beer. Aside from that, the architecture in Brussels is diverse, and spans from the medieval constructions on the Grand Place to the postmodern buildings of the EU institutions which tourists find it interesting.

If you want to know more about the city you must have a Brussels translation to suit your needs.
