Belgium Things to Do: 933 reviews and 1,111 photos


Belgium is a monarchy.
An institutional monarchy as they say.
Meaning the king has little real power.

But they are a bunch of funny people for sure.
We had some scandals , and sometimes
people will have a good laugh with them...
But they sort of keep Belgium together as
a country as well. You see , we got a
dutch parth (7 million people) and a
french parth (3 million people)
and a small german community as well.

Yes , I live in a ''con-federalistic'' complex country
and they are sort of above all that.

Belgians aren't often offended or shocked ,
when Albert II the present king was known
to have a daughter outside his marriage ,
nothing really happened...

If your interested in royalty ,
maybe it is a nice idea to visit
the bellevue museum in Brussels
neact to the royal palace.
