The Kingdom of Belgium is a federal state made up of three regions (Flanders in the North, the Walloon provinces in the South and the Brussels Metropolitan Region with Brussels as the capital in the center). In each of the smaller cities, you will find Gothic town-halls and gabled guild-houses, cathedrals and carillon bells, antique markets and rich museums, superb restaurants and fun pubs, jazz and medieval pageantry. Diamonds are Belgium’s best-known shopping lure but lace, chocolates, antiques, linens, pewter and copperware are other popular items.
Flanders can boast a range of attractive and lively art towns with a unique, rich and varied cultural and historic national heritage, each one only a stones’ throw away from the other. In Wallonia, where nature and culture go hand in hand, the charms of the past are connected with the contemporary attractions from prestigious castles to charming towns.
Brussels is in many aspects the country’s economic, political and cultural center. The capital of Flanders and Belgium, Brussels continues to grow each day as the capital of Europe. The city can pride itself on having the world’s most beautiful market square as well as a fascinating and varied architecture, ranging from Gothic, classicism and renaissance to art nouveau and art deco. The numerous museums offer a diverse and unique range of art collections. Brussels is also synonymous with recreation. Luxurious shops and modern art galleries alternate with colorful flower markets and popular flea markets. The sunny terraces and peculiar pubs offering an unequalled range of Belgian beer will treat you to some memorable moments. Countless quality restaurants with food from the old days on the menu, turn Brussels into one of the world’s most delicious cities.
