Belgium may be one of the smaller European nations, but it packs a cultural punch well above its size. It’s the headquarters for the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and is recognized as one of the greatest culinary destinations in the world. It has nurtured some of the world’s greatest artists (Rubens, Breughel and Magritte among them), and its ancient cities – including Bruges, Leuven and Brussels – contain jewels of Gothic architecture. Ravishing Ghent is also a vibrant university town, while Antwerp is celebrated for its cutting-edge fashion designers.

Delicious Belgian specialities include the classic moules-frites (a mound of fresh mussels served with slender, golden fries), and carbonade flamande (Stoofvlees in Flemish), a rich beef-and-beer stew. Belgian chocolates are renowned around the world, vying only with beer as the country’s most popular export.
