Squeezed between France and Germany, Belgium is primarily associated with interesting cities. Every year, Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp and Ghent attract thousands of tourists eager for a characteristic atmosphere and the taste of excellent chocolate and beer.
Belgium has been proud of its cities since the Middle Ages, which were among the largest in Europe during the peak of trade in the North Sea. To this day, Brussels, which is the seat of many European Union institutions, occupies a prominent place among the metropolis of the old continent. The city also boasts the picturesque Old Town and the Laeken district, which houses the famous Atomium, Brupark theme park and Mini Europa miniature park.
Bruges is a true Belgian pearl, where the beautiful Old Town from the Middle Ages has been preserved. Houses that look like gingerbread stand on narrow cobbled streets and canals, and throughout Bruges beer is produced in 250 small, craft breweries.
Beer dominates in Bruges, while chocolate in Antwerp. Her latest museum, Chocolate Nation, is devoted to this Belgian specialty. In addition to exhibitions showing the tradition of making chocolate, you can also participate in workshops and demonstrations. Another popular museum in this city is the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, where you can admire the works of Dutch masters from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
