Besides beer, chocolate, lace, and beautiful buildings, Brussels also boasts a unique structure - the Atomium.

Constructed for the International Exhibition of Brussels in 1958, the Atomium is comprised of spherical and cylindrical elements, steel and glass. A combination of sculpture and architecture, nine spheres are positioned to form a cubic structure. Very interesting stuff.

We didn't have a chance to go in the Atomium; next time...
