Atomium, Brussels

The Atomium is one of the universal symbols of Brussels.

The 102-metre structure, which stands loftily above the Brurparck, was built to coincide with the 1958 Brussels World Fair. 

It is composed of nine 18-metre diameter stainless steel spheres, which are tiered on several different levels and represent the unit cell of an iron crystal.

The top sphere, which affords spectacular views of Brussels, is accessed by the fastest elevator in Europe - at least that's the claim made by Atomium staff every time you visit!

Below find some photos of the Atomium:
