Belgium's magnificent Royal Palace was built in the 19th century
as the official residence of the Belgian Royal family although
today is used for official functions and other ceremonial purposes.
The palace is positioned in front of Brussels Park, itself well
worth exploring, and directly opposite the modern Parliament
building as if symbolically representing the country's system of
government, a constitutional monarchy. Tours are only possible in
summer and commence after the National Holiday on 21 July. Inside
are a multitude of historical artefacts and some impressive
contemporary art, commissioned by the queen in 2002.
