Belgium is a low-lying nation in the Benelux region. It is strategically located at the crossroads of Western Europe. It combines the continent’s ancient monuments with stunning contemporary architecture and rural idylls, while its capital, Brussels, is home to the European Union’s headquarters.
Belgian society, despite this, is not without divides. On the contrary, Flanders, the northern portion of the nation where Dutch is spoken, and Wallonia, the southern, French-speaking region, often clash, and at times it seems as if their quarrels would divide the country in half. Despite this apparent incompatibility, Belgium’s two parts combine to create a nation that boasts some of Europe’s most beautiful and ancient towns and is a’must-see’ for every tourist to the continent.
Belgium, which is located on the North Sea coast, is bounded on the south by France, on the east by Luxembourg, on the east by Germany, and on the north by the Netherlands.
