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artists and merchants it once attracted have now been largely superseded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.
