For a capital city, central Brussels is easily visited on foot. One of the most beautiful central squares in Europe, the Grand Place is located in the heart of the city. Architectural gems are on every side of the square. Bruges is said to be Europe’s best-preserved medieval city, and rightly so; it is the main attraction of the country. A visit to Bruges is like visiting a 13th century “living museum” with a river running through its center.
