Explore Brussels, Belgium

With each step the anticipation builds, the chatter from the street begins to fade, the temperature lowers and the sunlight drifts away. As you push open the museum door, you are instantly transported back in time. You’re surrounded by curves, arches, dimly lit stone, and walkways branching off ahead — it is a totally different world. It is here you stand amongst the remains of what was once known as [the] Palace of Brussels.

The Palace of Brussels remains were buried beneath the City of Brussels in 1770, later to be discovered, preserved and now open to the public to marvel at its beauty.
