Belgium: Antwerp

On 21st July I got two postcards: one from Belgium and one from France.

The card from Belgium shows the Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp. Antwerp is the largest city of Belgium and the capital of the Antwerp Province. The Port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the World. It is known as Diamond Capital and is one of the most multicultural cities in World. In 1920 Antwerp hosted the Summer Olympics. As one of the Belfries of Belgium and France is the belfry of the Cathedral of Our Lady since 1999 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
