Atomium, Brussels

4 Mar

How could you miss the Atomium when traveling by the Atomium Line?

What really is the Atomium? That’s it –OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Atomium is a steel structure that appears to be a unit cell of iron crystals magnified billions of times! Piggletino feels like a scientist now! See how much he knows about atoms and molecules!

The tubes connecting the spheres enclose escalators or staircases that brings you to each sphere. Within the spheres are exhibitions and public spaces such as a restaurant. As you first enter the Atomium, you will be invited to stand in line to board the fastest lift, which can take you to the top sphere that gives a panaromic view of the city. Here you go, Piggletino can prove it!

This is one of the staircases that can bring you from one sphere to another – looks a little like time travel, doesn’t it? Be sure to check out all the exhibitions when you visit the Atomium!

      Yeps! It’s pretty nice outside, really – interior is average. A little dated but still, Piggletino will have good fun wherever he goes!
