Brussels is well-known for being the seat of the European Parliament, its miniature theme park and its modernist Atomium. However, it is also a place where visitors can discover some of the best art nouveau architecture anywhere in Europe. The vogue for art nouveau, which ran for a few of decades from about 1890, coincided with the construction of some of the Belgian capital’s finest buildings. Visitors often miss out on these wonderful fin-de-siècle masterpieces, so why not take the time to visit them the next time you are in the city?
