Belgium Architecture

Belgium architecture like most of Europe is known for its conquests and its occupiers, predominantly, the French and the Dutch so expect beautifully coloured buildings, finesse and style everywhere you turn.

As a pinnacle centre for science and the arts, it has been known for its riches and these have seen investment into its architecture and hence the styles of the late 1800s and early 1900s are still around. Its most predominant styles are Art Deco and Art Nouveau buildings. These types of buildings are scattered all over the city.
