Brussels is the main seat of the European Union and the capital of Belgium, so it’s a very business-like, political city, with a feel much like Washington, D.C.. The city dates back all the way to the 10th century, so the city has a gothic influence, at least those parts that survived the bombings during World War II.

Both Belgium and Brussels are officially bilingual (French and Dutch), and the city lies just to the north of the linguistic border between the two languages – Dutch to the north and French to the south. While Brussels is a beautiful city, it’s not generally considered a European “must-see,” probably due to the mix of French and Dutch speakers - it just doesn’t have the unique culture that many other European countries have.

However, with a population of almost two million people, the city is certainly worth exploring if you’re in the area. It boasts terrific fine arts, architecture and food. The country is known for its chocolate, waffles, fries (with mayonnaise) and beer, so be sure to make time to try all four during your visit.
