A small countrywith a big reputation, Belgium is world renowned for its artisan chocolatiers, its signature dish ‘moules frites’ (mussels and chips), and for boasting no fewer than 1000 brands of beer.

Belgium’s biggest draw is that its capital Brussels is the de facto capital of the European Union and headquarters to NATO. Belgium's two largest regions are the Dutch-speaking region of Flanders in the north and the French-speaking southern region of Wallonia, where you can also find pockets of German-speakers. Its other cities include breathtakingly beautiful Bruges, dynamic Antwerp and the hip medieval city of Ghent.
