Walk around Brussels
• Walk around Brussels
Brussels I did not like. Boring, littered with debris and built up boxes of glass and concrete city. Among the residents a lot of visitors. More than half a day, I do not want to stay here. From pleasant - some non-central areas, similar to American towns from the movies, and beautiful graffiti. Today - the capital of Belgium.
At first, there were no signs of trouble. Non-central areas seemed to me in his own cozy, and I thought that I would get a good impression from the entire city. Even something like America, right?
However, the farther to the center, the Brussels became increasingly frustrating. Garbage in the city are taken, most likely, not often - the next day everything was lying as well. Containers for some reason do not enjoy all the trash cans from old sofas to lying in the streets
meter bunch. Passers-by and add their bit - in fact bring the bank to the urn too lazy, not only in Russia
By the way, about our country. It is to say that this is some boring regional or regional center of the Russian Federation
Go ahead to the center. again trash
The long wait cleaners trash begins his own journey around Brussels
And this is a just city dump
In general, the garbage - a business card of the city
Do not know what kind of thing, but it would like to call out to the city better cleaned. Can hear?
Still image is the theme
Brussels - capital of Europe
Because of the location here of the European Union institutions, NATO and other international organizations, every fourth resident of the city - a foreigner. In the 1960s, city officials began to settle visiting family in the central districts of the city
Another feature of the city - an architectural monstrosity city. After the war, the authorities demolished almost the entire historical Brussels, replace it with a box of glass and concrete. It so
or so. Many critics argue that the city has more suffered from the "reconstruction" of 1960-1970-ies than on the bombing of the Second World. And they are right
And this is the place for some reason reminded Moscow
The central square. Probably the only place that was left of the old town
The majority of tourists are walking on it. Unlike Russia, in Europe on the areas you can still sit. We all end in the same policeman demanding "from the area get up, sit not necessary"
A positive - in the Brussels thrive cyclists
Still there are a lot of street art
As in the center
"Brick" Parisian theme is also present. Not only know whether it is legalized, as in France
But a lot of options
I noticed that in Europe almost no one holds large dogs
Before I reached the Manneken Pis, but due to the crowds of tourists normally take it there was no way. And all saw it. To remind you what it looks like, will show up. Advertising shop Belgian waffles. Boy standing in his position, and decided to eat in between times. Oh, and great waffles
Somewhere in there is pissing girl, it did not look. Only got to clean up after the Manneken Pis
One of the stations
direct access to the street, no turnstiles. Tickets are attached to a special machine at the entrance
Return to Brussels does not want to. What can not be said about other places in Belgium. They are beautiful and cozy.
