The first day of the trip was completely dedicated to Belgium’s capital city, Brussels.
Just 3 hours away by car from Luxembourg, Brussles greeted us with a splendid late autumn weather: 16 Celsius and a nice, sunny sky.
The sight seeing started with the famous Atomium. Build for the World Expo held in 1958 and featuring the image of an iron crystal enlarged 165 billion times, it had the fastest lift of Europe at that time. Today is not the case anymore, but it is highly appreciated that it is well kept and still running.
Each “bubble” can be visited and it contains short paragraphs about the Atomium’s history, together with some old leaflets and objects featuring it throughout the time. The highest ‘bubble’ it is actually a restaurant where one can enjoy a coffee with a view.
But enough talking, now let’s enjoy some visual delights:

Cannot skip taking a selfie with the Atomium:
To end the note, I think it is also useful to prepare a budget for visiting the Atomium. Around 30 EUR would be enough for getting inside, having a coffee and buy some souvenir.
Feel free to add your toughs or impressions about this place, if you visited.
