Dating back to 1847, this gorgeous shopping gallery right in the heart of Brussels is a true testament to the craftsmanship of Belgian architects. Inspired by the more famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan and The Passage in St Petersburg, this building is also reminiscent of the narrow street-like courtyard designed by Vasari at the Uffizi, in Florence.

The Grand Place or Grote Markt in the heart of Brussels is lined with breathtaking buildings, but my favorite is this one – the House of the Dukes of Brabant, an elegant 18th century mansion. This is one of the largest structures in this plaza and it was named after the 19 busts of Dukes of Brabant displayed here. In fact, behind this gorgeous facade there are seven separate houses, but despite the name, no duke of Brabant have ever lived here.

If you are ever in Brussels, you must make a stop to Poelaertplein. It’s right next to  the Palace of Justice, but it is not a touristic attraction per say. It is however the perfect spot to take in the entire city. In my humble opinion, there is no better view over the Belgian capital than this one.

I don’t know about you, but where I’m standing it’s extremely hot. I have to admit that I’ve missed complaining bout the heat. So, you are suffering as much as I do, then here’s a refreshing photo I took a few years park in Brussels Park. Splash!

Today we’re exploring the streets of Brussels. Though it is an old city, the Belgian capital has a surprisingly modern feel. Don’t get caught up on the city center and the famous Grote Markt. The square is quite stunning, but Brussels has so much more to offer, and its true atmosphere can be better experienced on its less touristic streets.
