Brussels the most cosmopolitan city: a destination not to be missed
Located between France and the Netherlands, Brussels is the city that links the Latin and Germanic cultures. It is one of the headquarters of the European Union. It is estimated that it was founded in 979, but nothing has been verified.
At the start of the 12th century, trade became a main player in Western Europe, and thanks to its port on the Senne (and not the Seine, we agree), Brussels became an important commercial crossroads.
Indeed, via the canals and rivers of the region, Bruges, Ghent, Louvain, Antwerp have become real commercial hubs allowing goods to pass from Germany to France, England and also Italy. For two centuries, Brussels will be able to enrich itself happily.
The famous Battle of waterlootook place less than 20 km south of Brussels, as a reminder, it opposed the French army (led by Napoleon I) known as the Army of the North, to the Allied army, commanded by the Duke of Wellington and composed of the British, the Germans and the Dutch (Belgian and Dutch units ), joined by the Prussian army commanded by Marshal Blücher.
