The Cinquantenaire in Brussels, Belgium

Brussels, written in French Bruxelles and Brussel in Dutch is the capital city of the European Union (EU) and the largest urban area in Belgium. It comprises 19 municipalities, including the City of Brussels proper. The City of Brussels is the constitutional capital of Belgium, the seat of the French Community of Belgium and of the Flemish Community.

I have here an image of the Cinquantenaire Park which is a large public, urban park (30 hectares) in the easternmost part of the European Quarter in Brussels, Belgium. It is also known as Jubille Park of "Park of the Fiftieth Anniversary".

I took this image while riding on a bus going to Luxembourg. I wish to share more images from Brussels in my future post. The triumphal arch was planned for the National Exhibition of 1880 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the independent state of Belgium.
