Atomium


Atomium is a big atom shaped building in Brussels. It was constructed as a symbol for the 1958 World Exposition in Brussels on the theme 'Progress and Man'.

One can see the beautiful view of Bruges city from the top. The 'Mini Europe', where many of Europe's famous buildings are replicated in small size is also near to and visible from the Atomium. You can see the view of Mini Europe in the last picture.

The building is a model of atom magnified 165 billion times.
