Brussel ~ Part 3 ~ last part

Takde idea nak celoteh panjang... so layan jelah sebahagian gambar yang di'snap' semasa jalan2 Brussel. Gambar lain simpan untuk buat khazanah masa depan

Ke mana pergi pun, perut mesti diisi..barulah ada tenaga dan mood nak bejalan-jalan. Kalau perut berkeroncong... macam2 angin yang datang

Besi bulat2 kat belakang Anis tu namanya Atomium. Bagi mereka yang pernah ke Brussel rasanya tak lengkap kunjungan ke sana kalau tak ke Atomium nie. Sedikit info tentang Atomium ni :

Designed by the engineer André Waterkeyn for the International Exhibition of Brussels, that took place here in 1958, the Atomium is a structure that is half way between sculpture and architecture, symbolising an iron of cristal, magnified 165 billion times.
Throughout the ages, man has sought to give architectural expression to his desire for height; towers, pyramids, belfries, cathedrals,…
The Atomium, in particular, embodies the audacity of an epoch that seeks to confront the destiny of man with scientific discovery.
The nine large spheres joined by tubes which comprise the Atomium, are arranged in the configuration of a central cubic system. These spheres, with a diameter of 18 metres, were fitted out by the architects André and Jean Polak.
Made entirely of steel clad with aluminium, the structure, at a hight of 102 metres and standing on three enormous bipods, dominates the Heysel plateau.
The Atomium was not intended to survive the Exhibition of 1958. Its popularity and success, however, ensured its place as a major landmark on the Brussels skyline.
