Opinions vary about Brussels. The 19th century English poet Matthew Arnold called it a "white sparkling, cheerful, wicked little place". The American Herman Melville, on the other hand, claimed "a more dull, humdrum place I never saw". What isn't disputed is its key role in modern Europe. Although the poets and thinkers, artists and merchants it once attracted have now been largely superseded by the planners of the European Community and NATO, Brussels remains a thriving place, where citizens not only of Europe but of the world can feel at home.
As the capital of the European Union, the profile presented by the city evolves from year to year. In addition to its venerable and noteworthy sights dating from past centuries, including its magnificent market square, the Grand Place, Brussels also presents an increasingly modern face to visitors as ever more new office blocks are erected to meet the demands of the city's emergent role.
The Insight FlexiMap of Brussels is a great travel addition. Here is an innovative laminated folding map that marries durability and convenience with accuracy, utility, and readability.
Produced with state-of-the-art technology, FlexiMaps feature detailed city street and road maps clearly marked with all the sites and services of particular interest to travelers.
Text and photographs offer a wealth of valuable tourist information including "10 sights you shouldn't miss," plus information on transportation, visas, currency, important telephone numbers, emergency services, and more.
