The enigma and funeral art of Brussels

Bruxelles, Belgija

Doživljaj koji organizira Yauheniya

Jezik: engleski, ruski

Što ćete raditi

This experience is about visiting some royal parks, eclectic architecture and Laken cemetery, it is the oldest cemetery, which is a funeral art museum: open to the public daily 8.30 to 16.00. Together, we will look at the craft-art of sculptors and try to seek the signs of life and death cycle. Every tomb might tell a story. We will take some time and space together to interpret it. At some of the tombs I will introduce a historical-biographical note.

We will look into the routine of the Laken environment and cemetery from the perspective of nowadays: how is the art taken care of? Is the cemetery active? If yes, for whom? What are future plans of the site?... Why from some of astonishingly beautiful art-nouveau buildings the trees are growing? Why the schools are looking as a military sight? How do people make a profit in tea salons, selling exclusively teas...? Why the Notre-Dame de Laken is so famous?

See you!
Other things to note
It's a more or less accessible sight: I will help you in case needed. Bring warm clothes, please, if it is winter season.

Hallo! My name is Yauheniya, living over 2 years in Brussels.

I truly adore to discover the undiscovered. Let's say, I live on another side of the channel. Some might say it is industrial, some might argue is luxury.

What's up then?

My experience of Brussels lies among royal gardens, the oldest noble cemetery, eclectic architecture, - name it bourgeoisie; and the rough buildings in grey masses with alike sites, - call it proletariat. Yet, frankly, nothing is so black and white...

...being a graduate of philosophy (MA), I am glad to share with you some bits of controversial Brussels and its aesthetics.

See ya!

Gdje ćete biti

Royal Parks: an exclusive biodiversity of the region, historical sights.
Some bits of eclectic architecture in Laken.
The oldest cemetery of Brussels, so called Pere Lachaise of Belgium.
Depending on time and your wishes, we might visit inside of Notre-Dame de Laken, church of Laken (next to the cemetery: the royal crypt is open the first Sunday of the month only; church is open from 14.00 normally).

Best tour ever! More of a 'must-do' than your usual must-dos. Exclusive sightings, detailed and quirky perspective with fun riddles and anecdotes. I really feel connected to Brussels now. Even gave me suggestions how to enjoy more of the city and they were great. I want Yauheniya to take me all around the world!

Friendly, really knew her stuff. Was the only one on the tour and got to see a lot and experience quite a bit. She'll also help you find somewhere else to go to after the tour.

Yauheniya is clearly passionate about all art and architecture, but especially funerary art and its Belgian history. She had so many interesting stories - a bunch of good riddles. (And we had Jana along too, who is also a longtime resident of the area and super knowledgeable!) This was such a wonderful tour!
