Belgium_Brussels_1Brussels is the capital of Belgium. At the same time it is the capital of Europe and is  the main centre of European and international politics.

It hosts principal EU institutions and NATO headquarters. It is one of the most international cities in the world, home to numerous international organisations, politicians, diplomats and civil servants.

The city of Brussels attracts thousands of tourists with its old architecture, spacious green places and European atmosphere.

The most famous landmarks of the city are the Grand Square and the tiny statue of the Manneken Pis.

The central square in Brussels becomes especially popular every two years in August when an enormous “flower carpet” is set up.

The Manneken Pis is the iconic symbol of Brussels and is a fountain containing a bronze sculpture of a urinating boy that is regularly dressed in  the national costumes of different countries, according to the occasion and their national and public holidays.
