Historically, Belgium was Europe’s battlefield and it was in fact one of the three provinces of Gaul during the coronation of Julius Caesar. The country’s distinctiveness to an extent is a curse because of the never-ending tension between the French-speakers (Walloons) and the Dutch-speakers (Flemish). It is already a divided country and it is only a matter of time before it implodes. The division is so obvious in meaningless things like how they name their streets. The French-speaking regions “rue (street)” will become “straat” in the Flemish-speaking regions. As if that is not enough - different public transport companies operates in both regions. I can continue but that’s not the reason why I created this post. I created the post because of my admiration of their exquisite architectures. Below are few of the pictures that I took a while ago while taking a photo walk with a friend in Brussels.
