Mannequin Peace has remained the most popular symbol of the Belgian capital for many decades. The history of its appearance is shrouded in mystery, and even the most experienced guides will not give the tour participants to Brussels an exact answer to the question of who and when installed the bronze figurine at the intersection of Dubovaya and Bannaya streets..
Legend has it that it was in this way that the boy extinguished the enemy's ammunition, which flared up during the war at the city wall, and prevented a fire in the medieval city.
