Undoubtfully worth a journey to Belgium by itself, the Grand Place of Brussels illustrates the wealth and the power of the business corporations in the second millenium. Beautiful is to weak a word.

It a square that is in the city center. It is really crowded expecially at evenings. You can sit on the ground and see grand palace and another buildings. It is a good place to hang out with friends and have a little chat.

It's totally different visiting the place in the day and night. Try both to see the difference. At night, people sat around, just chilling and enjoying the view. There's really only one word to describe the night view. Stunning.

Can I walk around the Grand Place (or other parts of Brussels) with a beer? I'm unfamiliar with the liquor laws. Thanks!
