The most hidden alleyway, one that is actually buried: Isabelle street, located under the Place Royale as its mentioned in Brussels streets map. It was built in the reign of the Infanta Isabela, to allow her to travel from the Imperial Palace to the Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula. Do not look for it on the Place Royale, as it can only be reached via the Coudenberg Museum.
Chaussée d’Ixelles is Brussels second busiest shopping street as its mentioned in Brussels streets map, with 31,200 shoppers perusing its shops each day – though as it undergoes serious roadworks, there is considerable disruption. While Chaussée d’Ixelles street is full of stores devoted to fashion, decoration and leisure, you can also veer off towards the Saint-Boniface neighbourhood where cafes, boutiques and restaurants await you in a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
A short trip down street de la Cigogne, in the Dansaert district, is like a little breath of the countryside in the city (see Brussels streets map). This small, 70m long street exudes charm. Its residents place tables and chairs outside as soon as the sun comes out. The entrance to the alleyway via Rue Rempart des Moines takes visitors under a porch topped with a small chapel that houses a statue of Saint Roch dating back to 1740. In 1840, this street was called Impasse or Rue du Cygne, as were six other streets in Brussels. This is why it was renamed Rue de la Cigogne in 1840, even though this beautiful wading bird has never appeared in the street.

Brussels is skirted by the European road E19 (N-S) and the E40 (E-W), while the E411 leads away to the SE as its shown in Brussels roads map. Brussels has an orbital motorway, numbered R0 (R-zero) and commonly referred to as the "ring" (French: ring Dutch: grote ring). It is pear-shaped as the southern side was never built as originally conceived, owing to residents objections.
Brussels city centre, sometimes known as "the pentagon", is surrounded by an inner ring road, the "small ring" (French: petite ceinture, Dutch: kleine ring ), a sequence of boulevards formally numbered R20 as its mentioned in Brussels roads map. These were built upon the site of the second set of city walls following their demolition. Metro line 2 runs under much of these.
On the eastern side of Brussels, the road R21 (French: grande ceinture, grote ring in Dutch) is formed by a string of boulevards that curves round from Laeken (Laken) to Uccle (Ukkel) as you can see in Brussels roads map. Some premetro stations (see Brussels Metro) were built on that route. A little further out, a stretch road numbered R22 leads from Zaventem to Saint-Job.
