The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Get some historical perspective at Grand Place and Saint Bavo's Cathedral. Step off the beaten path and head to The Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde and Citadelle (Citadel). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brussels: Minnewater Lake (in Bruges), Tyne Cot Cemetery (in Zonnebeke) and Antwerp (Cathedral of Our Lady & Grote Markt). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Gravensteen, take in the waterfront at Graslei and Korenlei, and steep yourself in history at St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).
