Belgium is often considered a small country, and it is in terms of land area. But what Belgium lacks in size, it more than makes up for in culture. From its charming medieval towns to its world-famous chocolates and beer, there is much to explore in Belgium. And language lovers will find plenty to enjoy, as Belgium is officially bilingual, with French and Dutch being widely spoken.
