      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...

    • Salsa in Leuven

      by landlady1999 Online Now Jan 13, 2013 at 10:50 AM

      Hello, I am coming to Leuven for a week and I like dancing salsa (or at times other Latino American dances). Tried to google but didn't find anything of use. Is there any place that organises Latino American dancing evenings (either when they only play Latino music or when at the beginning of the evening they give a lesson of dancing and the rest of the evening everyone dances as they wish) or specifically Salsa evenings?

      Otherwise, if nothing Latino American, or specifically Salsa doesn't exist, is there any other place in Leuven which organizes some kind of a dance lesson and then after that, the rest of the evening it's simply the disco?

      thank you for the answers in advance.

      P.S. I will be in Leuven from Tuesday to Monday.

      how to get from Amsterdam to Leuven

      by jezzabel Online Now Aug 8, 2008 at 4:36 PM

      I've been doing some research but I'm a bit frustrated. I've found that you can get there by train but haven't managed to find how much it'd cost (which is an important detail...) Also, I've been trying to find buses ( but they dont seem to do that route. Any ideas?
      And also, does anybody know how easy it is to get to the Charleroi airport from Leuven?
      We only have one day in Belgium before we head home. We'll be coming there from Amsterdam. I've heard there's nothing much to see in Brussels, so someone recommended us to spend that day in Leuven instead. But so far finding transportation to Leuven from Amsterdam is getting a bit trickier than to Brussels (hence my call for help here). If getting to the airport from Leuven is also gonna be more complicated then we might consider keeping it simple and just stay in Brussels.
      I'd appreciate any sugestion on that.
      Many thanks for your help!

      I have been looking on the websites and all i could find is renting bikes for at least 1 month.

      (2) How far is Leuven to Brussels? Does it make more sense for me to take a hotel in Brussels?
      (3) How safe are both cities? I will be carrying a lot of video and audio gear so I need to know how safe these cities are.
      (4) Any favorite places?
