Bruges

The Kingdom of Belgium is located in northwest Europe, covers an area of 30,528 km2 (11,787 square miles) and has a population of about 10.5 million. It is a founding member of the European Union and hosts its headquarters, as well as those of other major international organizations, including NATO. Straddling the cultural boundary between Germanic and Latin Europe, Belgium is home for two main linguistic groups, the Dutch speakers/Flemings and the French speakers, mostly Walloons, plus a small group of German speakers. The capitol city is Brussels which has a superb city center. The preserved medieval towns of Brugge and Ghent are also top attractions. Belgium is famous for its cuisine, chocolate, and of course its beer. Brands of Belgian chocolate and pralines, like Callebaut, Côte d'Or, Neuhaus, Leonidas, Guylian and Godiva, are world renowned and widely sold. Belgium produces over 500 varieties of beer. The Trappist beer of the Abbey of Westvleteren has consistently been rated the world's best beer.
