One of the best views of Brussels is from Poelaertplein. It’s a large square, near the Palace of Justice, from where you can see most of the city. Brussels was built on several pretty steep hills, that is why there are elevators to help people (mostly tourists) cross the city faster. From Poelaertplein there is such an elevator, right where I took this photo. This is a perfect example of how old buildings are overshadowed by the newer skyscrapers in the Belgian capital.
