The roots of Brussels go back over 1000 years now and today the city is the headquarters of the French and Flemish Communities. Brussels has an important international vocation: as the European capital the city is home to the European Commission and to the Council of ministers of the European Union (EU). Brussels is a cosmopolitan city where many different cultures live together and where different languages can be heard on each street. This liveliness and international flair is, of course, intimately related to its role as a crossroads for all of Europe. The center of Brussels is the Grand'Place (Grote Markt). This historic market square with its splendid guild houses and the impressive Gothic beauty of the Town Hall, is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful town squares on the continent.
