The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.

The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis, see the interesting displays at Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).
