Belgium belies its relatively small size as a country with a fantastic range of historical and cultural things to do. As the home of the EU, Belgium is a cosmopolitan and cool country. It’s divided into French and Dutch-speaking sections which adds unique regional differences to its major cities. The capital, Brussels, is home to fantastic architecture – the Grand Place is one of the prettiest central squares in Europe.  

Meal times in Belgium are always moments to treasure. Moules et Frites are available in brasseries and restaurants across the country, along with other famous edibles like Belgian waffles, handmade chocolates and craft beer.
