It’s also an important location for both the Benelux union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Having seen these, it is only natural that Brussels has become a popular city for tourists, as they can not only visit the historical buildings and locations of Brussels, but the ones related to these organizations as well. If you are wondering what to see in the city, here is a list of the top 20 best things to do in Brussels.
- Manneken Pis
What better way to start such a list than with a statue of a small boy with everything visible? Actually, as funny as it sounds, the Manneken Pis is one of the most recognizable landmarks of Brussels. This small statue is seemingly heeding nature’s call and urinating into a fountain. It has been put there about 400 years ago, and has become quite popular among tourists and citizens alike. On several internation occasions, it is dressed up in different kinds of clothes and costumes. It became so popular that many other cities and countries replicated the Manneken Pis.
