Galeries Royales Saint Hubert

Grandeur and Luxery in the City Centre

Tropismes Librairie (FR)
by Tropismes.com
Dans le cadre magnifique des Galeries Saint-Hubert,
construites en 1847 par l'architecte Cluysenaer,
la librairie Tropismes s'est installée dans l'ancien "Blue Note",
haut lieu du jazz belge et international dans les années 1960,
qui avait gardé d'une salle de bal pour jeunes filles sages
des murs en miroirs, une mezzanine impressionnante,
un plafond aux stucs étonnants et des colonnes enrubannées...
Rayonnages de livres et tables d'exposition
s'y sont intégrées avec enchantement.

by Norali - virtualtourist.com
Belgium can pride itself on being a pioneer in some fields...
First railway net on continental Europe, the most dense also.

Then, the first to have built a covered shopping mall
in Europe (or so I was told).
