Atomium in Brussels
The Atomium is the modern landmark of the Belgian capital. Built on the occasion of the Expo 1958, this model of a molecule consisting of nine atoms symbolises the atomic age..
Today, Brussels is known primarily as the seat of the EU administration. Hardly any other European capital is better suited for this. With reference to human dignity, the mayors of the 19 Brussels municipalities as well as the police refused to bow to inhuman orders of the Nazi dictatorship.
