Walking around the city center, you can't miss the St. Nicholas Church. Entering it, you can feel the Gothic architecture and the history of medieval times.During my visit, a a very pretty miniature village with puppets was set inside the church.

One of my favourite places in Brussels for a reflection and prayer. It is a quiet place. This church has a character. Altar of St Nicolas is on the right hand site.

This church was a nice respite from a day of touring. There is no charge for entry. We enjoyed some quite meditation in this historic church.

This is a fine church located in the city center, and while it won't be the sole focus of anyone's vacation, it's well-preserved and worth 20 minutes of your time if you're in the city center.

When visiting Brussels, you will surely pass this central church. Do pop in because it's free and the windows are gorgeous.

This isn't quite as grand as some of the other churches and cathedrals around Brussels, but it's still very beautiful. Worth a look around and inside there are a couple of things you won't see in other churches, like a little miniature nativity type scene.
