Belgium is a country located in western Europe bordering Germany, Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, and has a rather large coastline by the North sea. It has a population of 11,492,641 (2020 estimate) and covers around 30,689 square kilometers.
Belgium is a rather unique country in many ways, but also for their diversity of spoken languages. Belgium doesn’t have a national language like most other European countries, they however natively speak both Duth, French, and German, depending on where in the country you are. Apart from the languages, many of the regions are also quite diverse in their political viewpoints, which has resulted in their type of government, which is a constitutional monarchy parted into 6 rather individual governments. This way the elected political parties only govern in part of the country.
Belgium is greatly known as the country of waffles and chocolate, which helps attract several millions of tourists every year. They are even said to produce the best chocolate in the world, and you would know this if you’ve ever had a taste of it.
They however naturally have much more to offer as a travel destination or even a potential home. Belgium has a beautiful contrast of cities and nature. The cities being cramped with narrow streets and medieval belfries, charming market squares and antique architecture overlooking urban canals, and the rural areas mainly consist of hilly forests, however if you go to the infamous Ardennes, you’ll find mountains as well along some of the most serene landscaping you’ll ever meet. In the midst of the forest-y countryside, you can encounter magical untouched castles, spectacular caves and agrarian valleys. As Belgium has had royalty since their independence from the Netherlands, and had royalty before that as well, they have plenty of intriguing castles to visit, such as the Gravensteen van Gent, Groot-Bijgaarden Castle and Gardens and hundreds of others.
The capital of Belgium is called Brussels, and is actually known as the capital of Europe as most of the European Union departments and UN headquarters are located here. Many politicians from all over Europe and the world occasionally gather here to discuss important matters.
Apart from this, the city is rather full of sights and experiences. Due to the many invaders through Belgium's time, they are now full of multiculturalism and diversity. Some musts in the city, is to visit the old working class quarter the Marolles, where a hip revolution has taken over and turned the area into a new yorker-berliner kind of perspective on traditional belgian foods, artificials etc.
Belgians are known to be the perfect mixture of the German politeness and no-bull-shit attitude, and the fun, dramatic southern mindset. This plus the diversity of opinions and languages makes it easier to fit in as an expat than in some of the neighboring countries.
