Brussels - a Monument to Historic Europe
Brussels is Europe writ large; historic, multicultural, and multiple scraps about which language to use. Oh yes, the slap fest between Dutch or French is an ongoing battle that is best avoided by the casual visitor! But come for cheap city breaks you should.
Brussels celebrates its EU-ness with a slightly quirky nature - lots of art-nouveau architecture coupled with historic squares, gorgeous old buildings and excellent public transport. Food is good here (testament to those bureaucratic salaries?!) but there is truly something for everyone with multiple cuisines and plenty of budget choices. Your starting point for a European city break in Brussels is the Grand Place, Brussels' quite magnificent central plaza. Stand in the middle and do a 360 turn taking in the grand buildings, the guildhalls and the rather spiffy restaurants.
