Charles Karel Buls Fountain - Review
Buls was a Freemason, and mayor of Brussels from 1881 to 1899. He was quite progressive for his time but his main achievement was to thwart King Leopold II’s attempts to mutilate Brussels. This fountain on Agora Square shows him reclining, his dog by his side, admiring the city he helped preserve.

Charles Karel Buls Fountain, Brussels Reviews
Peaceful mostly. Some buskers are quite annoying though. 😁
There is an interesting statue of late 19th-century politician and city Mayor of Brussels Karel (Charles) Buls, which can be seen at Agora Plein a couple hundred metres north of Grand Place. The statue was erected in 1999 and is a life-size depiction of Buls sitting on the steps of a small fountain along with his dog. He is holding a book in his left hand while petting his dog with his right. During December when we visited, there was a Christmas tree mounted atop the fountain, which was turned off for the season. This made for a nice image of Buls this time of year.
Lively place with plenty of bars and restaurants.. Good place to stop for meal and drinks,
It's so happy and relaxing to be here!
There is so much to see and do in Brussels that you will fail to notice some of the more interesting sculptures, memorial,monuments,or public art installations. I am sure that many will walk by this wonderful fountain erected to remember a highly respected gentleman known as Charles Buls or Karel Buls. Charles was a Belgian politician and mayor of the City of Brussels. In 1999, a fountain with a larger-than-life-sized seated statue of Buls and his dog was erected at the Place Agoraplein, close to the Grand Place and I suggest that you take the time to visit it the next time you visit the city centre. I have never noticed any water in the fountain.
