Wordless Wednesday - The Grand Place, Brussels

Brussels is world famous for its magnificent Grand Place, the central market square which is a welcoming destination for tourists from all over the world. It is surrounded by the Town Hall, guild houses, and the Bread House, with some cafes and restaurants at almost every end. I was overall very impressed by the remarkable architecture, priceless art works lining the town square. Unfortunately I wasn't there when the spectacular flower carpet laid down the square, but it was marvelous nonetheless. The people are friendly and almost all the shops speak English. It has been a very memorable adventure that we will never forget.





A visit to Brussels is incomplete without experiencing the world famous Belgian chocolate.





some ancient buildings are located just a few blocks away from the Grand Place
