the first arcade in Europe, opened in 1847 in Brussels. The building, 213 meters long, consists of a long corridor with two upper floors under a slightly curved iron-framed glass roof. In the aisle, pilasters separate the showcases of individual shops. The entire structure is designed in the Italian Cinquecento style. The idea goes back to the Dutch architect J. P.

the official residence of the Belgian monarch, located in the center of the capital in the Brussels Park. The Belgian royal family actually resides in the Laeken Palace, located in the Brussels district of Laeken. The Royal Palace is used by the king mainly as a place for official events. The modern classicist façade appeared only in the 1900s. The building of the palace itself began to be built at the end of the 18th century. The Royal Palace should not be confused with the King's House on the Grand Place, which, despite its name and location in the historic center of Brussels, has never been used for the needs of the monarchs.
