Like most important European cities, Brussels developed by the water. Until the mid-19th century, the river Senne crossed the entire city (it was covered over for sanitary reasons). Until the early 20th century there was even a harbor in the city's center. Now, only the port and the canal Brussels-Charleroi remain.
