In the wake of 2 important medieval trade centres Brussels and Ghent


I have worked in Brussels for several years, am born and raised in Ghent and would love to show you around in 2 of my favorite Belgian cities!
Everybody knows the emblem of Brussels; the small peeing boy. But Brussels is so much more than that. .
It is the center of European culture, officially nicknamed "the European village".
The Grand Place-central square- with its guild halls, is one of the most beautiful squares in Europe with Baroque, Gothic and Louis XIV architecture. The entire square is listed as World heritage by the UNESCO.
Brussels has so many points of interests to explore. . .

Ah Ghent. This amazing metropolis is the quintessential European city that should be on every one's itinerary.
Ghent is a happy confluence of contemporary European culture and medieval history set amid a city of academic achievement, gastronomic distinction and one-of-a-kind shopping.
