Belgian comics hold a special place in the history of art and writing, and Brussels showcases this distinct history beautifully. Peyo's Smurfs still hit the silver screen, and perhaps the best known of the Belgian comics artists would be the mastermind behind the world famous Tintin comics, Hergé. He even has a whole museum dedicated to his work just outside of Brussels. The city showcases this bit of Belgian history publicly on the sides of building and tucked into ally ways. The public art, especially these amazing wall murals, in Brussels is worth dedicating a day for exploring the cities nooks and crannies.
