A unique attraction and symbol of the city is the surprisingly small bronze statue of a boy urinating into a fountain called Manneken Pis. The 400-year-old sculpture has its own collection of colourful costumes on display in the city museum. In addition to the Royal Palace, the European Quarter with the European Parliament is certainly worth a visit. Find a break from the hustle and bustle of city life in one of the many beautifully landscaped parks that Brussels residents are especially proud of. If you are holidaying with your family, spend a day in Mini-Europe. The amusement park offers exactly what its name suggests - miniature replicas of world-famous European landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Tower of Pisa and, of course, the Grand Place. Don't forget to stop by the nearby Atomium, an enormously magnified iron crystal, which was constructed for the 1958 Brussels World's Fair.

Experience Brussels, the city of countless museums, landscaped parks, sin-worthy chocolate and excellent beer.

If you are a chocolate or beer lover, Brussels will not disappoint you. Its inhabitants know how to enjoy good food and drink. Join them and order fresh fish, baked potatoes with mayonnaise, traditional Belgian waffles or sin-worthy chocolate. Add even more to your meal by sampling any of the excellent Belgian beers in one of the Belgian capital’s traditional pubs.
