Brussels - The Capital City of Belgium - Rovignon Bed and Breakfast
The city of Brussels, capital of Belgium and home to the European Parliament welcomes visitors with a pleasant temperate climate and a host of sights and delights to entertain and a great deal more than the proverbial beer and chocolate. Narrow cobbled streets open suddenly into the breathtaking Grand-Place, with its ornate guild houses, impressive Town Hall and buzzing atmosphere. Bars, restaurants and museums are clustered within the compact city center, enclosed within the petit ring, which follows the path of the 14th-century city walls. Other Brussels landmarks include the bronze statue of the Manneken-Pis, The Royal Palace, Belvue Museum, the Natural Sciences Museum and the Royal Museums of Art and History.
