Colonne du Congrès

Here I present one of the many brussels little pearls. It has been build to remember the constitution of Belgium and is now used as the rest place of the unknown soldier.
Beside all this, it's just a beautiful piece of architecture of 50 meters high from Poelaert, a big brussels architect of the 19th century.

I saw this when I lived in Brussels but didn't know what it was. Thank you, David, for the story about it and these lovely pictures of snow in Brussels... and I haven't seen these pictures before, so that will surely make you happy ;-)

Beautiful pictures of a lovely monument. Thank you for posting them. I must visit Brussels again one day, there is clearly so much to see...

Absolutely stunning.. If I were lucky enough to see that great monument in person, I doubt very much that I'd be able to look away.
