Brussels

Brussels, the capital of Europe, is a city of languages and cultures with a constant flux of immigration. Today, 30% of the population is foreign. This largely mixed character defines Brussels’ identity and makes it a unique place, open to the world. This diversity contributes to a broadened perspective and appreciation of different points of view within a mosaic of cultures, traditions, languages and beliefs that characterize Europe today.
