Belgium: a mix of impressions and harmonies!

13 July 2015 | Travelogue 022

The Middle Age of North and the Art Nouveau of South!!!

Amazingly, this tiny country  contains highly diverse landscapes, ranging from the North Sea to the deep Ardennes forests, from sandy beaches with dunes and polders to hilly regions full of valleys and plateaus.
Belgium is above all its cities full of works of art bearing witness to its glorious past and eventful history. There are the canals in Bruges, the towers in Ghent,  the Grand Place and magnificent Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels, not to mention  the citadels in Dinant, and the oldest town in the world Durbuy . Nearly every town is a enchanting setting with bell towers, town halls, covered markets, canals, carillon music and peaceful Beguine convents.
This peppy little country had more than one surprise in store for us!
