This is the main entrance of the Royal Palace in Brussels. Though, here is where the King exercises his duties, the actual royal residence is Castle of Laeken, on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. This place is right in the middle of the city, in Brussels Park, and it dates back at the end of the 18th century. However, on the same ground, the old Coudenberg Palace was built during the Middle Ages. Throughout the years the building was extended and improved, and the last monarch to bring a significant change to the castle was King Leopold II, who changed the entire facade, at the beginning of the last century.
