The Atomium is probably the most famous symbol of Brussels and a worldwide renowned monument. It was built on the occasion of the World Exhibition of 1958, according to a design by the artist André Waterkeyn, and it was meant as a celebration of the great scientific discoveries of the ‘50s.
The iron sculpture represents the structure of atom, reproduced on a scale 165 billions times bigger than the real one, and it rises 100 m above the Bruparck, one of Brussels most beloved parks, which also hosts the Mini-Europe.
The 9 spheres of the atom size a diameter of 18 m each. They are connected with one other through lifts, and host inside exhibitions spaces, whereas the central sphere is occupied by an elegant restaurant.
