Forget the Mannekin Pis - this is the structure that best
symbolises Brussels and certainly the one locals are more proud of.
Built for the 1958 World Fair, the Atomium takes its shape and
proportions from the internal lattice of an iron atom. There are
nine spheres linked by escalators and each contains exhibition
rooms hosting a rapidly changing series of exhibitions. There is a
great view from the deck of the uppermost sphere.
