Brussels: an incredible cosmopolitan environment

Ranked #2nd coolest neighborhood in Europe by the Guardian! Triple capital of Europe, Belgium and the Flanders region, Brussels is host to both NATO and the EU headquarters, European base for a large number of international corporations (more than a 1.000 from the United States only), welcoming home for a population of some 300.000 expats, incredibly cosmopolitan… Yet Brussels remains a very relaxed and laid-back town which manages to keep its human scale.
