Flights to Brussels
Brussels is a vibrant, ethnically-diverse metropolis that acts as the main home to the European Union. The region has a population of 1.2 million and has become a major centre for international politics since the end of World War II. When you arrive you'll notice that streets are displayed in both Dutch and French, as although it's a historically Dutch-speaking city, there has been a shift towards French since the end of the 19th century.
Walking the city's streets, you'll get a sense of the rich diversity of cultures and backgrounds that amalgamate here, each speaking their own languages. While the architecture has the traditional Belgian feel, one third of the population are non-Belgians.
