Let's get lost in wanderlust and get our bags packed and plan ahead for a trip as of the reason this magnificent tiny place is worth to visit and must make our trip awesome by providing lots of catchy and fond memories that would turn into nostalgia by the time thereafter and that would be quite pleasing and make us feel proud for being visiting this place named Belgium.

Belgium-the Cockpit of Europe, well, it is so-called because it has been the site of more European battles than any other country, for instance, Oudenarde, Waterloo, Ramillies, Fontenoy, Fleurus, Jemmapes, Ligny, Quatre Bras. Belgium was a sufferer of both the world wars. Besides its size, this small country offers very delightful things that must be checked out.

The Kingdom of Belgium or simply Belgium is located in western Europe, shares the border with the Netherlands to the north, Germany to the east, Luxembourg to the southeast, France to the southwest, and the North Sea to the northwest. Being a blend of vintage designs and contemporary art and culture, Belgium is quite charming that would take your inner soul to a great height.

From eye-popping architectures to opulent palaces, castles, museums, parks, gardens, pubs, swanky restaurants, there are lots to do here and it's very much delightful and of course, you would enjoy it a lot with having great fun. Being the capital city of Belgium, Brussels, the largest and great place where you can do a plethora of things that would entice you. Amongst them, the most spectacular are Grand Palace, Mannekin Pis, Atomium, Mini Europe, Belgium Comic Strip Centre (do you know that the well known comic characters Smurfs, Tintin, Lucky Luke and Blake were born here and the comic strip is celebrated in Belgium, even the splendid art is displayed at this centre), Royal Palace and Tintin Museum.

Bruges, another city of Belgium is quite quaint and is known as 'Venice of the North'. Explore the city while cruising along the canals and admire the city's splendour.

Some other beautiful places are Antwerp, Leuven, Ghent (old fashioned city but full of charm with colourful buildings, historical sites and pristine churches and a popular destination for art lovers), Ardennes (full of thrills especially for adventure enthusiasts and do things like trekking, biking and camping) and many more and while there, just enjoy the world-class wafers and mouth-watering and delicious chocolates of Belgium which is famous all over the world and really overwhelming.
