Belgium might be a small country, but it has played an important part in the history of Europe. For many centuries it has been the battleground for major European powers, and is today home to the headquarters of the EU and Nato.
In Brussels, the capital city, both French and Dutch are the official languages, but generally the country is split between the Dutch-speaking region of Flanders in the north and the largely French-speaking Wallonia region in the south. The north is flat but studded with historical cities which are well connected by train and close together. Attractions in the south are more rural with bucolic villages, caves and castles.
Situated just the other side of the English Channel and with five airports as well as Eurostar connections, Belgium holidays are the perfect option for a quick getaway. Impressive architecture, excellent museums and galleries, idyllic canals, not to forget the famously delicious Belgian chocolates, as well as over 400 types of beer, all combine to make a truly delightful experience.
