Last weekend, I had the opportunity of visiting Brussels for the first time. I was amazed by the architectural marvel across the city. The city is famous for the Art Nouveau architecture and also the home place of the famous architects Victor Horta and Paul Hanker. That is why we get to see stunning examples of Art Nouveau architecture across the city.
The city is not only the capital of Belgium but also the headquarter of the European Union. This city is a busy place with many tourists visiting, lots of eateries, restaurants, bars and shopping malls.
I would like to share some of the pics that I have clicked while touring this magnificent city.
Manneken Pis, a bronze statue of a boy peeing in a basin. There are two more peeing statues in Brussels. The theme behind these statues is the free-spirited, down to earth, surreal spirit of the Bruxellois!
I recently visited an old Dutch city of Haarlem. The city is just next to Amsterdam. It is famous for it’s historical relevance, the old wind mill, canals around the city. It was a busy port from the 13th Century. As old as from the 13th Century, you can enjoy the city ‘s delightful center place , the simmering Dutch good living and the typical quintessential European experience.
It is this beautiful Haarlem, which gave America’s Harlem, it’s name back when New York was “New Amsterdam”, a dutch colony.
I have tried to capture some scenic beauty of this centuries old city. Hope you will like them.
Hello, my dear friends, I had the opportunity to visit an old medieval Castle in the Netherlands. The castle is situated at the centre of Netherlands, near Utretch. It is the most luxurious and biggest castle in Netherlands. It has the old European historic charm. Visiting the castle, took me back straight to my childhood fairy tales world. It is an ideal image of medieval fortress where the rich and famous Dutch family of early 20th century, Van Zuylen family used to reside.
I have taken a couple of pictures of this beautiful Castle. Hope you will like them .
