Bruxelles / Brussel
|Appearances||"The Final Problem"|
Brussels is the capital of the Kingdom of Belgium. In "The Adventure of the Final Problem", Sherlock Holmes and John Watson resolved to leave Britain to escape from Professor James Moriarty. After losing Moriarty in Canterbury, the pair took a ship from Newhaven to Belgium, where they spent two days in Brussels. After their brief sojourn in the city they traveled on to Strassburg, Germany, where they received the unwelcome news that Moriarty had escaped the British police and was likely to be following them still.
