Brussels, Belgium/Брюссель, Бельгия

Let's go to Belgium.

Прокатимся до Бельгии.


Welcome to Belgium.

Добро пожаловать.



This sign shows that there's a speed limit of 50 km/h (31 mph) in town, 90 km/h (56 mph) on a motorway (a road outside of a city limits, but not a highway) and 120 km/h (75 mph) on a highway if not posted otherwise. Roads are nice.

На въезде в страну стоит знак. В городе максимум 50 км/ч, вне пределов города -- 90, по шоссе -- 120.



Brussels is the capital of Belgium. It is a pretty town. Here the modern buildings stand opposite to old houses.

Брюссель -- столица Бельгии. В этом городе современные здания соседствуют со старыми домами.



There are churches and palaces.

 Стоят церкви и дворцы.



There are quite a few parks and lots of greenery here despite the high land prices due to the fact that it is a capital city and an unofficial capital of the European Union.

Несмотря на высокие цены на недвижимость, в городе большое количество зелени и парков.





Brussels is a scenic town.

Уютный город.










Pictured below is the entrance to the European Union Parliament. Free tours.

Это (на фото ниже) -- вход в Европейский парламент. Сюда бесплатно пускают на экскурсии.










Traffic in Brussels is one of the worst in Europe, so no need to buy a fast car. This guy must be from out of town.

Дорожные заторы в Брюсселе считаются одними из самых больших в Европе, и если жить тут, то нет смысла покупать большую или быструю машину. Это, наверное, турист.
