Only one day in Brussels was enough for me and my friends to have an amazing time together! We headed from Finland to Belgium for a break between Christmas and the New Year’s Eve and we found in the city much more than we were actually expecting. Some friends were previously scaring me with the boring question “What the hell are you gonna do in Brussels? There’s nothing there!”. Seriously? I strongly disagree! The city is beautiful, full of life and international people, surrounded by awesome street art and cartoons everywhere and it smells like chocolate and waffles. During the night, the Grand Place (the main square) was crowded with people from all over the world trying to find the best spot to see the colorful light show projected in the buildings, while a relaxing Christmas melody was being played. We were there, enjoying it like it has to be in the last days of the year, especially when you have to thank for a 2013 which treated you so amazingly well.
I was able to take a huge amount of pictures in 24 hours, so I’m gonna divide this post into two: The city and the fun, and below you can see some highlights in the city, while the fun is gonna come straight away! 🙂
