    • 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...

      housing in Mechelen

      by Tina-Bxl Online Now Mar 20, 2014 at 4:56 AM

      I have a friend from Italy coming over to Belgium, She will move to Mechelen from August to December for a traineeship.

      She will have to search for a room: do you have any suggestion on how to find a low-cost accommodation in your city (e.g. useful websites, which are the most suitable areas of the city to find cheap rooms, if you have any information on families available for a sort of "aupair" exchange,...).

      Activities for kids in Mechelen

      by rlg2706 Online Now Mar 22, 2010 at 5:10 AM

      Can anyone help with this one? I am going to be spending a weekend in Mechelen, Belgium. I am meeting a friend from the continent and her family there. Our kids will be meeting for the first time and I need to find somewhere to meet where there will be lots for the children to do, where they can be active and can play together (there will be a language barrier. So hands on activities or adventure playgrounds or a big park to play sports, where they don't necessarily have to be able to speak to each other to play. There will be four boys aged between 6 and 9 and a 12 year old girl. My 12 year old will probably hang out with the adults so activities for lively boys please!!!!!
      Thank you for any help....

      My husband and I are hoping to visit Mechelen very soon. We are coming on eurostar to Brussels and then by train to Mechelen.Can we get a bus from Mechelen railway station to Novotel Mechelen Centrum on V Beethovenstr. If so, which bus do we get and do you pay the driver or get your ticket/s before boarding.
      I look forward to hearing any information. Thanks Heather.

      Is there a bus service from Mechelen to other places? How difficult would it be to travel to Bruges on public transport?
