Brussels – the capital of Europe

Belgium, Brussels - cheap flights

As the centre of European Union, Brussels quickly became one of the most popular flight search result among young tourists. Here are some must sees for those who visit it for the first time.

Art & architecture

In Brussels there are numerous historic buildings that represent well-preserved examples of classic, baroque and gothic architecture. Make sure you don’t miss the Grand Place listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site or St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral. Those who enjoy entertainment and knowledge should plan a trip to the Museum of Natural Sciences, the Train World or follow the Cosmic Strip Route.

Take a break

In Brussels there are many parks and gardens where you can relax: Jardin du Petit Sablon, Foret des Soignes or Bois de la Cambre to name just a few. It’s a great way to rest the next sightseeing tou.

Food to eat

Belgium is mostly famous for junk food, however, there are some traditional dishes that you’ll love, such as beef casserole, a creamy fish stew called ‘waterzooi’ or meatballs in rabbit sauce. If you’re a fan of sea food, try the popular moules-frites or ‘anguilles in vert’ – an eel in green sauce.
