Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Brussels

Brussels, capital of Belgium and principal seat of the Belgian Royal Family, is situated at the geographical center of the country. It occupies rising ground on the edge of the valley of the Senne, a tributary of the Scheldt, at a point where the hills drop away to the plain of Flanders. The city is capital of the province of Brabant, and Greater Brussels ("L'Agglomération de Bruxelles") forms one of the country's three autonomous regions, the others being Flanders and Wallonia.
