Most of all I love to ramble through the city with a camera and "catch" unusual windows, cornices and other interesting details.
Through the camera lens the image of the city is often quite different from that you expect.

Brussels was no exception and also showed its "other face":
these windows with a figure of a saint between them and the green "set" of urns, bollards and lanterns on a stone-paved street.



Belford

Lace of the tower hall (belfort) rises above the Grand Place and is visible from almost anywhere in the city center. Dürer rightfully called it "transparent".
At the very top - a statue of St. Michael, patron saint of the city.

It's a pity that I did not have time to visit this time, at least from the outside, the museum of Victor Horta.
Victor Horta - the architect who built in 1893 in Brussels for Professor Tassel the first building, fully Art Nouveau-styled - Hotel Tassel.

Horta designed in Brussels a few buildings in this style, among them his own house, which entered, like the Hotel Tassel, the UNESCO World Heritage List and which now houses the Horta Museum.

Well, let's leave it for the next visit. And now alogn the gourmet-street back to the car and on the return trip.
