      Alexander Pushkin in Brussels

      Brussels Feb 9, 2017 at 4:04 AM

      Hi, if there is anybody still there...
      I am going to Brussels in May, just read today - it's exactly 180 years since he was killed by a fellow from these places - that there is a statue, a street and even a bus stop in Brussels named after our poet Alexander Pushkin (Pouchkine).
      I have found the statue in Laeken (wonder where this is), between metro stations Belgica and Bockstael. No sign of any street.
      Any idea how I get to this Laeken from Avenue des Merles, 9 à Woluwé Saint Pierre. The good old Google says it should take about an hour on two buses (or maybe they are metro lines). Does it look feasible?
      I do not know much about Brussels, have got a Home Exchange arrangment there - helps to travel economically...

    • Platforms in Kortrijk station.

      by arjun1997 Online Now Sep 30, 2013 at 3:10 AM

      Okay, this might sound a little stupid, but I just wanted to be sure. I have seen photos of the Kortrijk station and there doesn't seem to be any passover to get from one platform to another in the Kortrijk station. Are there seperate entrances for each of the platforms or is there a connection between the four platforms?

    • looking for information about kortrijk and my grandmother

      by mperkins Online Now May 5, 2004 at 9:34 AM

      Hello. I am writing you from America. I am working on a family history scrapbook and have come acrossed some papers that say my Great grandmother and her parents and sisters lived at "Vijfwegenstraat" "fiveway street 107 from June 1901 till November 1906 when they moved to "Vijfwegenstraat 131. This is where my Great grandmother, Madeleine Van Loocke, who I am named after, was born. My great grandmother, born Magdalena Vanloocke on April 9, 1906 to Camiel ALberik Vanloocke and Maria Mayfroot. I understand she was born at Wijk, BI, Brugsche Kortrijk. Do you know if this is a hospital, a home, a street address. I have no idea what this means. She also attended a catolic school in Roeselare West Flanderen which was a few blocks from her home. Do you know the name of this school or even have a picture of it? I hate to take you time but would really love to have some information. Thanks for any help you can give me.
