Palace of Justice in Brussels, Belgium

united_kingdomIn the hallway of the Palace of Justice in Brussels I had the same overwhelming feeling I had in St. Peter Basilica in Vatican. It can be impressive with its size and architecture.

It houses the Law Courts of Belgium and it was build during the reign of Leopold I, being the biggest building built in the 19th century.

Since 2003, the facade and the Dome are covered in scaffolding and the company that was taking care of the renovation doesn’t exist anymore, so the building is now hidden under the scaffolding until it’s decided who is responsible for removing it. 😀

The Palace of Justice is situated on a hill and from the square you have a panoramic view over Brussels. It’s also my favorite spot in Brussels!

romania_flagIn holul Palatului de Justitie din Brussel am avut cam aceeasi senzatie de coplesire pe care am avut-o in Basilica Sf. Petru din Vatican. E MARE! Palatul de Justitie poate fi impresionant prin marimea si arhitectura sa (e mai mare decat basilica sf Petru din Vatican – daca ai fost acolo stii la ce ma refer). A fost construit in sec al XIX-lea in timpul regelui Leopold I al Belgiei si a fost cea mai mare cladire la timpul sau.

Din 2003 domul si fatada cladirii sunt acoperite de schele pentru renovare, dar intre timp compania care se ocupa de treaba asta a dat faliment si acum se dezbate cine e responsabil pentru plata indepartarii schelelor 😀

Palatul de Justitie se afla la inaltime (Brusselul e plin de urcusuri si coborasuri) si scuarul sau ofera o vedere panoramica asupra Bruxelului. E locul meu preferat!
