The “Grote Markt” also known as “Grand Place” or “Grand Square” is an important landmark in Belgium, Brussels and has been for centuries now.

But the square that was once crowded with tourists that were obsessed with seeing beautiful flowerbeds, amazing architecture, and almost 100 different museums has taken a break for the time being.

Overall, without all the extra set-ups, outside of the buildings, it provides a landscape that's similar to how it was back in the day. How historic!
