Room 273 is located in what is known as the "Kleine Zavel"- Building, just a few steps from the Main Building in the Regentschapsstraat (Rue de la Régence). The Kleine Zavel or "Petit Sablon" in french (Brussels is a bilingual city, and all street and place names have two names. Welcome to our surrealistic country!)...what was i saying? Ah, yes: the Kleine Zavel lies just across the street from the Grote Zavel. It's a very beautiful miniature park, the perfect spot for a picnic lunch in between lessons. At least when it isn't raining.

In between Grote and Kleine Zavel lies the Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-ter Zavelkerk, or the Church of our Blessed Lady of the Sablon
