The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Get some cultural insight at Musical Instruments Museum and Atomium. Let the collections at Manneken Pis and Belgian Centre of Comic Strip Art capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Antwerp (Cathedral of Our Lady, Pierre Marcolini, & more). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Grand Place, don't miss a visit to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, see the interesting displays at Horta Museum (Musee Horta), and admire the landmark architecture of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule).

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at The Chocolate Line Bruges and Dille and Kamille. Let the collections at Groeninge Museum and Frietmuseum capture your imagination. Explore Bruges' surroundings by going to Ghent (St. Bavo's Cathedral (Sint-Baafskathedraal) & Gravensteen Castle). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Historic Centre of Brugge, don't miss a visit to The Markt, admire the striking features of Basilica of the Holy Blood, and get to know the fascinating history of Beguinage (Begijnhof).
