      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...

    • HMS Vindictive memorial & railways

      by WelshJohn Online Now Nov 6, 2011 at 1:23 AM

      Last year I holidayed in Oostende and one day from the coastal tram I caught sight of the HMS Vindictive memorial. I wanted to photograph this but was unable to find how to get there. When I got home I located it on Google. I shall be in Oostende for a short period of time in a couple of weeks and would like to photograph it then. At the railway station halt on the tramway, the tram heading towards Knokke goes up a hill with what looks to be a pedestrian walkway at the side. Is this correct (is it permitted to walk up the slope?). Also as I am interested in railways, is it possible to view any locomotives from the top of this slope?

      Thank you for any help you can give.
