THE HREAT FLAGEY DISTRICT

Place Eugène Flagey, usually shortened to Flagey by locals, is a square in the Brussels municipality of Ixelles, Belgium. It was named in honour of Eugène Flagey, mayor of Ixelles from 1935 to 1953. With ten streets converging at Flagey Square, it is one of the best connected crossroads in the city, directly adjacent to the neighboring Ixelles Lakes (or Ponds). Beginning in 2002 the square was extensively renovated. Place Flagey is famous for the art deco building occupying its entire southern side, the former Maison de la Radio, renamed to "Flagey" in 2002. It now hosts a cultural center. Its "Studio 4" is one of the concert halls with the best acoustics worldwide, home to the Brussels Philharmonic. It is also used as a recording studio; the award-winning soundtrack of movie The Artist was recorded here. The building on the opposite side of the square to "Flagey" houses the first supermarket ever opened in Belgium (on 18 December 1957), belonging to the brand "Delhaize". The Frit Flagey stand (fritkot), serving chips cooked the traditional Belgian way, is among the best in Brussels. "Belga" café is just the most famous of the dozens good-places-to go-out that are located at the four corners of the square. A 1 Km-long footpath along the lakes departs from the square, leading up to the impressive abbey complex "Abbaye de la Cambre", a truly way back to medieval atmosphere right in the middle of modern architecture.
