Park Cinquantenaire

Local name: Parc du Cinquantenaire

Parc du Cinquantenaire is a large city park. Its central part is decorated in a French style and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. In addition, the park has the oldest and largest mosque in the capital, the Automotive Museum, the Royal Museum of Art and History, as well as the triumphal arch. You can also find here various fairs, performances or a summer drive-in cinema.

The park was founded in the nineteenth century on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Belgium's independence. Initially, this area served as a maneuvering square, where army shows took place. In later years, construction of exhibition pavilions began. In 1897, in connection with the World Exhibition taking place in Brussels, a triumphal arch decorated with a chariot with four horses and a figure symbolizing Brabant was created.
