I have chosen two snowy views for today, as winter is coming... Unfortunately, snow is very rare in Istria, region of Croatia where I live, so I enjoy it only when trevelling inland. But when the snow actually falls, there is a total chaos - I didn't even go to school one day (last winter, or the winter before... I don't remember anymore) when we had snow :P
Anyway, the postcards shows Grand Place, the central square of Brussels, Belgium. Except snowy view in winter, the view that you might find even more beautiful is an enormous "flower carpet" set up once in two years on Grand Place. A million colourful begonias are set up in patterns, and the display covers a full 24 by 77 metres, for area total of 1,800 square metres. The first flower carpet was made in 1971, and due to its popularity, the tradition continued, with the flower carpet attracting a large number of tourists. Grand Place a UNECSO World Heritage Site as well.
