Brugge, Belgium - One of my FAVORITE places in Europe; the pictures online do not do justice to its beauty. Bruges looks like a page out of a fairytale storybook; green fields, horse carriages, swans, cute town, nice people, and a lovely river throughout. In addition, there are windmills! A beautiful place and highly recommended!!
Antwerp’s old Stock Exchange's spectacular interior hall was constructed during the 19th century to replace an earlier building designed by Domien de Waghemakere, which had burned down in 1858. The Stock Exchange building off Meir Street in Antwerp was closed in 2003 due to fire regulations. All but abandoned over the last decade, plans are reportedly afoot that will see the grand structure transformed into a 5-star hotel and public city lounge.
