The Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium

Let' go travel Europe again! This time we are visiting Brussels, the capital city of Belgium. I am featuring the central square of Brussels called the Grand Place or Grote Markt in French language. This square is the most famous sight in this city and considered to be the most memorable landmark. Together with the Atomium and Manneken Pis, these are all included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site.

These are some of the snapshots I took during our visit last summer 2010.

The Brussels Town Hall stands 96 metres (315 ft) tall and is capped by a 3 metre (12 ft) statue of Saint Michael slaying a demon.

The Grand Place is surrounded by guildhalls, the city's Town Hall, and the Breadhouse (French: Maison du Roi, Dutch: Broodhuis).
