The Grand Place

The central square in the middle of downtown Brussels really deserves its own post, and here it is! The most spectacular building in the square is the Town Hall, seen here, but what makes this square so impressive is that when you step into it you are surrounded by fantastic architecture just like this on all sides. Of course, the square is always full of tourists taking pictures, and the little shops right around it cater to the tourists as well - but we're still "tourists in our own city", so we don't mind too much. Every other year in August, the square is filled with a carpet of flowers - and the next time the event will happen is August 2008. Mark your calendars!
