Brussels combines the charm of a small city with a cosmopolitan vibe. The rich contrasts in the city's languages, politics, architecture, and cuisine reflect its multicultural community. The welcoming Belgians are an ethnic mix of Flemish, Walloons, Germans, and Brusselers. They exhibit a playfulness with frequent marching bands, offbeat store window displays, flamboyant whiskers, and pencil graffiti. How can one resist all of this and waffles, frites, and chocolate, too?
