The title of this post says it all. This is the feeling I got during a recent trip to Brussels. I knew it is the capital of the European Union but wasn’t expecting it to be so vibrant.
I didn’t get any sense of slowdown (in terms of economy) while I was in Brussels. This city is hustling and bustling with all kinds of business activities. The construction of new buildings and restoration work is in full swing.
The city is also orderly and clean unlike some of the other European cities. The only issue was that we visited Brussels after Brugge.. so didn’t find that many opportunities for photography. I settled with few pics and focused on being there and enjoying the moment (rather than the photography).
If you’re visiting Brussels, I think a day or two is good enough for sightseeing. It would be better to save bigger chunk of your vacation visiting other cities in Europe.
