For all its pivotal importance historically and politically, not to mention gastronomically, Brussels remains one of the least known cities in Europe.
Derek Blyth has lived in Brussels for many years, and his book takes the visitor to the secret and surprising places of Brussels as well as round the grandiose monuments and spectacular museums.
Thirteen city walks, illustrated with historical paintings, engravings and photographs explore the centre of Brussels, and also include such joys as visiting Waterloo, the matchless art nouveau architecture, and surrealist art in the metro.
Two chapters of further pleasures include the superb cemeteries, and the forests and villages on the outskirts of Brussels.
Comprehensive practical information gives a connoisseur's guide to the restaurants of Brussels, some of the finest in Europe.
