Belgium In Belgium, mu home country Belgium, the country where I was born and still I ‘am proud to be Belgian but my country is a very special case. It is divided into 2 small regions: Flanders and Wallonia. My house is located on the border between both regions and 50 meters from the French border. Belgium is mostly known for its medieval towns. Visiting Bruges, for example, is a must experience for any travel lover, and in this city, you will feel as if you have traveled back in time to the middle ages. Ghent is another pearl of Belgium where there is much to visit and discover. Antwerp, Liège and the capital, Brussels, complete the list. If it is true that Belgium is the heart of the European Union and here is its capital, then it is also true that Europe is only truly known when you visit this country and its most beautiful cities.
