BELGIUM

"I wandered the vintage city for a few days, admiring its renowned museums, ancient fortifications, illustrious port, historic landmarks, and plentiful grand old buildings with their fascinating classical, neo classical, gothic and baroque architecture, the astonishing 16th Century Guild-houses in the legendary Grote-market being particularly memorable." - Chef for Sail
