Brussels | Atomium

From Bruges, we travelled to Brussels to visit the former 1958 World Exposite that is now called Atomium.  It is now a museum. The nine stainless steel clad spheres are connected to form a shape of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.

One word from me. Hefty! Yes, what a hefty structure is this Atomium. But in an intriguing way. Made me very tiny at the side of Atomium.

We did not spent a long time in Atomium.  A group photo and some selfie and welfie and off we went to our next destination.  The grand place of Brussels.

This is indeed one of the must-visit places in Belgium that conducted tours will take you to. It's an interesting structure.
