The cosmopolitan capital of Belgium is a bilingual city where both French and Dutch are official languages. All of the streets have two names; for example, the main square is called both La Grand-Place and de Grote Markt. The Grote Markt contains an array of spectacular Gothic buildings, including the 15th-century Brussels City Hall, which towers 315 feet above the square and is capped by a 12-foot statue of St. Michael. Elsewhere, you will find art nouveau museums and art deco residences. Brussels is also a European gastronomic capital. Street fare includes moules frites, fresh waffles, handcrafted chocolate and artisanal beer.
