Tourism in Belgium
In the western part of Europe there is a small, but cozy and beautiful state — Belgium. The city of Brussels is the capital of this fairy kingdom. The city is very convenient. Just a few hours and you are in Brussels, Paris or Amsterdam. Brussels grew rich and developed thanks to trade, therefore the main square of the city is surrounded by the houses of former merchants and craft guilds.
The place of old burnt houses was occupied by unique structures, each of them has its own appearance and its own name. The house of the wolf archery guild is decorated with sculptural images of Truth, Lies, Peace and Discord. The house of the richest guild, the baker’s guild, «The King of Spain» is decorated with two busts: Saint Auber, the patron saint of bakers and Charles 2, the king of Spain.
Belgium is a very attractive country for tourists, it is a very cold winter and a moderately hot summer, although in different regions of the country the weather conditions are very different from each other. So near the coast prevails maritime climate with humid air, so tourists are recommended to go here during the warm season. In such central regions of the country as Brussels, and Antwerp, the continental climate prevails, so for tourists who want to see the sights and enjoy the beaches, it is better to come in July or August. Winter resorts in the Ardennes are popular from late autumn to the beginning of winter.
