A fascinating kingdom at the heart of Western Europe, Belgium, despite being small, commands attention and admiration in equal measure - the stage for many pivotal events in world history and boasts three official languages no less.
Belgium pirouettes on the world stage with creative flair too, you know, from the cartoonist genius that is Hergé’s Tintin, to the first Art Nouveau building ever built, and its grand ascent with local artistic greats such as Brueghel, Rubens, Van Dyck and the father of surrealism himself, René Magritte. Belgium’s headliner historic cities of Brussels, Bruges, Leuven – a city located 25kms east of Brussels in the Flanders province of Brabant, Ghent and Antwerp are world famous for their medieval architecture, culture and flair. A love of food from chocolate, waffles and Moules-frites to the art of brewing signature beers; the Belgians relish their complex cultural heritage, not forgetting their ‘Adoration of the Mystic Lamb’.
