Hi, I'm Vali, your passionate local host in Brussels! I absolutely adore this city for its serene streets and the everyday charm of places like Cinquantenaire Park. I'm captivated by the Art Nouveau style, especially Victor Horta's house with its natural, organic details. Cycling from the Botanical Garden to beautiful parks is a favorite pastime, as is wandering through the streets, marveling at architectural gems and their historical ties. Living in Etterbeek, I'm intimately familiar with the Parc Cinquantenaire area and beyond. My architectural studies have given me deep insights into Uccle, the European Quarter, and the panoramic views around Avenue Louise. I know where to find the best potatoes, beer, and hidden eateries. Whether it's architecture, history, dance, karaoke, vintage shops, artisanal chocolate, or museums, I'm your go-to person for an unforgettable Brussels experience!
