The Famous Atomium in Brussels

The Eiffel Tower is the major symbol of Paris, the same way as the Atomium is the major symbol of Brussels. Built especially for the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair (Expo’58), this group of giant metal spheres is one of the most impressive monuments in Belgium. The structure represents a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times. The favorite place that tourists like to visit is the windows in the top sphere. From there, you will have the opportunity to see an amazing panoramic view of Brussels. In addition, you will love to go upstairs and pass through the tubes towards each sphere. It is really exciting!

Without doubts, the Atomium created by the architect André Waterkeyn’s is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe. Closed for renovation in March 2004, the astonishing monument was reopened on 18th February of this year. Therefore, if you travel to Belgium and visit Brussels this year, you will be able to see the new and renovated Atomium. You will be able to enjoy the new restaurant which is situated in the top sphere as well as many new features created for the comfort of its visitors.
