The land of chocolate – Belgium

BelgiumBelgium – a beautiful country that is quite appropriately dubbed as the “Battlefield of Europe” is famous for being packed to the brim with historic architecture, art galleries and restaurants serving fine cuisine. Located in the north west of Europe, Belgium has a relatively quiet history compared to some of their larger European Countries, with some breathtaking architecture which was inspired over the path of hundreds of years through the middle ages, the regeneration, the revolution and of course modern times.

The country is a melting pot of cultures, which is made of medieval cities, traditional towns, striking town halls, mesmeric castles. It is a country that is best known for its specialty products such as ubiquitous beers, delicious chocolates, beautiful lace, and of course Belgian waffles that has made this small European country famous around the world. The creative and attractive medieval cities such as Bruges, Brussels and Antwerp are the hub of several stunning architectural Attractions, and almost 60 of them are listed as World Heritage Sites by the UNESCO.

Belgium is regarded as one of Europe’s secrets where culture and class are concerned. It is both multicultural and multilingual. Almost every town has something important to show, either medieval ruins or beautiful nature, museums or historical sites, and even provincial domains.

Brussels, the capital, is one of the world’s great multinational cities, home to the European Union, NATO and the Atomium monument. Also Brussels is home to one of the best restaurants in all of Europe. Brussels, is a fusion of some Art Nouveau skyscrapers and mansions, flea markets, art galleries, Michelin-starred hotels and restaurants, and ‘fritkot’ stands. Flanders, in the north, is a land bordered by canals that hosts medieval art cities such as Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent. Wallonia, in the south, is stuffed with the hills of the Ardennes, countless castles, and the cities of Liege, Namur, and Tournai.

A trip to Belgium is a pleasure for lifetime. Despite its size, it packs in great cultural experiences for every traveller.
