Living in Brussels
As a foreign student you will discover a city full of surprising contrasts. Brussels is a place rich in art and architecture, treating you to its local specialities, and its friendly atmosphere (see Tourism & Sightseeing). You will see that the city has a lot to offer to students; libraries and bookshops, sport facilities, shops, tasteful food and drinks, like the famous French fries, the delicious chocolates and the world's strongest beers (see Going Out).
