The architecture, artwork and religious structures of Brussels are breathtaking, their combined majesty placing visitors in awe year after year.
Tragically, many travel guides simply brush over the capital's beautiful historic and artistic attractions as mere items to check off a list during sightseeing, in what is actually the very heart of Flemish culture.
In stark contrast, Brussels - A Travel Guide of Art and History is designed for tourists wanting to achieve an in-depth understanding during their perusals of the wondrous achievements in painting, sculpture and design pioneered and advanced in Brussels. The Baroque majesty of the Grand Place, the breathtaking Gothic spires of St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral are just two of the culturally significant attractions described in this book.
Rich yet accessible descriptions of the most significant artworks and guidance through the hidden gems and the breathtaking old town districts likewise abound. The reader is spurred to sublime comprehension and a high degree of appreciation and enjoyment during their trip, ending it satisfied with the reams of cultural succour encountered and absorbed.
Designed as a companion to a more general city guide, this guide is ideally read as you tour and take in the many breathtaking works of art and ancient designs that Brussels, the mighty capital of Belgium and seat of the European Union, has to offer.
In reading this book composed by lecturer of art and heritage architecture Maxime Jensens, your journey through the capital's landmarks and streets will be imbued with enlightenment.
You will conclude your trip to Brussels not simply with happy memories of the gorgeous culture, cuisine and fine hospitality - but a thorough, intense understanding of how inseparable the country's art and architecture are from Brussels' very essence and fabric of being.
