The Treaty of Versailles after World War I was one of the causes of World War II.

Some major political leaders understood that a peace treaty is useless if unfair.  Therefore they decided to put into shape one of the 19thc. ideals and they created what we now call the European Union.

Some of the main European institutions have settled in Brussels.  How does the EU function?  Who decides what? Do Belgians, French citizens, German, Polish populations or Estonians feel European?  How do they live in Brussels?

To house the European Institutions, many changes occurred in this area.  What are the implications for the city and its citizens? Your guide will answer these questions and yours to understand better the evolution and life of the European Union.
