Belgium

Europe


Home to charming old medieval towns and a buzzing capital, Brussels, Belgium is also the seat of the European Union and NATO. Two distinct multilingual regions divide the tiny, history packed country with Dutch-speaking Flanders in the north and French-speaking Wallonia in the south, while Brussels is the bilingual, and very international, hub city. Explore the ornate guildhalls at the Grand-Palace or stroll through the art nouveau style European Quarter, wherever you wander, you'll note it's a vibrant city also boasting world-class restaurants and shopping. Beyond the cities, the countryside beckons with serene lakes, dune-backed beaches, dense forests and even underground caves.
