Brussels could be said to be the center of European politics.
The city doubles as the capital of Belgium and home to the headquarters of the European Union.
This is a city where historic sites sit side-by-side jostling for space with union ministries and office blocks. Often overlooked by tourists, the city still has its' own attractions and charm including a range of diverse architecture from the medieval Grand Place to the postmodern buildings of the EU institutions.

Its' gateway location and multicultural vibe makes Brussels more than administrative hub, it is a city that tempts visitors with the sweetest chocolate and the strongest beer in Europe.
However, like many parts of Europe it is a city that still bears the scars of World War II.
As a victim of German occupation, the effects of this is visible even today as the city is rebuilt and restored.
