Brussels: Belgian attractions If you have several hours in Brussels you can cover what I have managed to walk. We did not see any museums as we had only one day at Brussels and it fell on Sunday, when the museums may be closed, so you should take it into account when selecting the day of the week. City Hall is closed too. 8)

If you do not have Brussels map with you, then buy it in the gift shop - it is only 2.99 euros. The Brussels things to see are already marked on the tourist’s map. This will help you to quickly navigate to the location. In addition to the maps, I used Google maps mobile, also helps if you have signal or wifi in some cafes..

We did not use a taxi or public transport - all was done on foot.

First we sat for a break in a small cafe on the Grasmarkt street, near St. Hubert Gallery to eat Belgian flambé waffles and to have coffee. In addition to waffles, Brussels and Belgium are famous for its beer, which varies by taste and color (apple, lemon, peach .. but especially well known and famous cherry).

It is necessary to start with the main attraction and "centralized" things of Brussels which is Grand-Place. This is the most beautiful medieval square in Europe, the center of Brussels, where you can find the historic buildings of the 17th century.

At the square we located the global chain of Hard Rock Café Brussels. If you are interested in buying the traditional t-shirt with a guitar, then it will not take much time to go look. Good choice, including women and children clothing. We waled out with three T-shirts.

Saint Nicolas Church
The old church, located next to the Grand-Place, little to see, standing right at the split of the old streets. It was built about 1000 years ago and still retains the original foundations of the building. They said there is a painting by Rubens, "The Virgin” in the church of St. Nicholas. I do not know – we did not check
Royal Palace
During the summer, the royal palace is open to the public and entrance is absolutely free!

Le Tapis de Fleurs - Flower Carpet.
I'd love to see it, but the creation of this fabulous flower mat takes place every two years on the Grand-Place. I will have to come again!

St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule)
The cathedral has modern and interesting wall lays.

Town Hall (Hotel de Ville)
Located in the area of Grand-Place. It is worth to look, please make sure you have an hour to spend.

Les Galeries Saint Hubert
Galleries are located under a glass dome - roof on the square Grasmarkt. The first indoor shopping gallery in Europe is full of cafes, luxury boutiques and theaters.

Place du Grand Sablon.
The area for just walking and shopping.

Manneken Pis.
Somehow, Manneken Pis is considered a symbol of Brussels. Everyday it "changes" the outfit (seaman, military man, etc), and located near the tiny fountain which is CONSTANTLY surrounded by tourists. It is worth a look at and you may check the box. This Brussels thing was created by sculptor Jerome Duquesnoy in 1619.
