The famous pissing boy statue is not the only one in Brussels. Just down the alley from the Manneken-Pis is a statue of a girl engaged in a similar act - however it is hidden behind bars and not so celebrated as the boy.
A masterpiece of design, the main surviving relic of the 1958 World Fair, the Atomium is a giant aluminium and stainless-steel representation of the atoms in a steel molecule. Recently renovated to its original shining glory, the Atomium will reopen for visitors in February 2006. Features will include a top-floor restaurant with panoramic views. The building will host exhibitions and artefacts from the 1958 fair, but the building is worth a visit on its own.
