Traversing the trilingual country of Belgium is a wonder in itself. The nation takes pride in its Gothic architecture and Art Nouveau: Belfry, Antwerp City Hall, Church of Our Lady, City Hall, the Atomium, Antwerp Law Courts, Viila Roches, the Berlaymont Building, to mention some. The city of Antwerp in Belgium is famed for its diamonds, making it the “Diamond Capital of the World”. It was this multicultural city which was once home to the Flemish Baroque painter, Peter Paul Rubens. The Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp houses three of Rubens' significant works. Besides its culture and heritage, the national cuisine of Belgium, is worth dying for. Lets have some glimpses of this land of chocolate wonder. (Picture Courtesy: Arushi Tontsch, DAW)
