The La Grand Place featured in this postcard is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The UNESCO website describes this famous square in Brussels, Belgium as:
"a remarkably homogeneous body of public and private buildings, dating mainly from the late 17th century. The architecture provides a vivid illustration of the level of social and cultural life of the period in this important political and commercial center."
The building in the center is known as the Maison du Roi (King's House). It was was built on the site of the first cloth and bread markets, so the building is still also referred to as the Broodhuis (Breadhouse).
I am certain you'd notice the colorful carpet in front of the Maison du Roi. Every other year, in the month of August, an enormous carpet of begonias is set up in Belgium's most famous square. The one on the photo is the flower carpet set up in 2006. (To read more about Belgium's flower carpet, head on to this site.)
The fauna and flora stamps that came with the postcard are simply awesome!
