P424 - Belgium - The Grand place at night in Brussels


The Grand place at night with the flower carpet(surrounded by guild houses, the city's Town Hall, and the Bread House), Brussels, Belgium (UNESCO WHS)




The Grote Markt is the central square of Brussels. It is surrounded by guildhalls, the city's Town Hall, and the Breadhouse. The square is the most important tourist destination and most memorable landmark in Brussels, along with the Atomium and Manneken Pis. It measures 68 by 110 metres (220 by 360 ft), and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


布魯塞爾大廣場,是西歐比利時的首都布魯塞爾的中心廣場;1998年聯合國教科文組織將布魯塞爾大廣場列入世界文化遺產。

大廣場始建於12世紀;廣場面積不大,長約110米、寬約60米,被中世紀的行會建築所包圍。市政廳的塔樓建於1402年,高約91米,是廣場上最高的建築。

廣場十分富有生活氣息,各種酒吧、巧克力店、餐館點綴四周;人們坐在廣場上幽閒自在。法國作家維克多·雨果也曾居住在市政廳對面餐廳二樓現在有紅色玻璃的房間,他讚美這裡是「世界上最美麗的廣場」。天鵝餐廳是當年馬克思和恩格斯曾經生活過的地方,著名的《共產黨宣言》就在這裡寫成。
