I am grateful to Peter from WOW travel for sharing his enthusiasm and article about Brussels with TiB.
Thank you, Peter!
"When people think of Brussels, they think mainly three things: the headquarters of the European Union, waffles and chocolates. However, Brussels has lots to offer and many hidden secrets to be discovered. Did you know that they are home to the oldest shopping centers in Europe? Did you know that they have changed of main language several times? Originally, Brussels was entirely Dutch-speaking but they changed to French in the 18th century. Who does not love french fries? Well, Belgians claim to have invented them and in fact there is a french fries kiosk in almost every corner. What about Beer? Belgians consume in average 150 liters of beer per person per year!
