A journey to Vlaams-Brabant.

Vlaams-Brabant, or in English Flemish Brabant is the Belgian province located in the north, near Brussels. The capital Leuven is famous for Stella Artois beers and has one of the most prestigious universities in the world. But Flemish Brabant also carries an enormous cultural heritage, and the province is filled with small spots that are definitely worth attention.

To start with, imagine yourself in medieval Belgium and how majestic it was. If you felt that urge to experience the forgotten times, there is no better place to start than with a Blue forest. The forest itself is very pretty regardless of time. But there is one particular season in the middle of spring that makes it look like an enchanted garden. In mid-April, the bluebells start blossoming, hence visually making the ground all blue. The forest awakens from the cold winter and gets filled with all the delicate aroma of the flowers. Visit this place if you feel like you are missing the untouched nature in your daily life.

Another valuable sight to visit is the Gasbeek Castle. The castle itself is quite big and famous for its unique interiors. There are Doornik tapestries on display, which are another medieval art form. The castle requires a whole day trip since the territory is located on 40 acres. You can divide the tip into two parts where you visit the castle itself and the indigenous agriculture museum. And then, visit the lake and just relax at a local coffee shop.

And if you just want to get that authentic feeling of Belgian lifestyle, visit one of the countless brewers. Vlaams-Brabnt region offers a lot of places: from simple ones to the most exquisite. You decide which atmosphere fits your vacation best.
