BELGIUM & BRUSSELS AT THE HEART OF EUROPE
Belgium is a kingdom situated in the heart of Europe, a federal state and a constitutional parliamentary monarchy. It has three official languages spoken: Dutch (or Flemish) in Flanders (the north of the country), French in Wallonia (the south) and German in the « Eastern Cantons » near the German border.
Some areas, like the Region of Brussels-Capital, have a bilingual status. Belgium is therefore at the crossroads of Europe and its various cultures.
BRUSSELS, THE HEART OF EUROPE
Belgium was one of the founding members of the European Union so it was logical that Brussels should become the political and administrative centre of the Union. Over a thousand international agencies (including NATO) are based or represented in Brussels, which plays host to over 150 embassies along with some 600 international press agencies.
SPIRIT OF BRUSSELS
The spirit of Brussels is the fruit of centuries of various cultural influences from all over Europe and it seems as if its population has always known how to turn these inputs into a comparative advantage. Brussels was thebirthplace or home to great artists and humanists like Bruegel, Erasmus, Magritte, Horta, Brel, Yourcenar or cartoonist Hergé (of Tintin fame) and its town square (the « Grand-Place ») is one of the most enchanting in the world.
