Belgium in northwest Europe is a founding member of the European Union, and although small it hosts the headquarters of NATO and the EU in its capital, Brussels. It has three official languages: Dutch, French and German.|
It is a constitutional monarchy with a popular king, Albert II as head of state. Belgium has a maritime temperate climate, similar to its neighbours France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Historic cities such as Bruges and Antwerp draw a steady stream of visitors who buy the local lace, beer and chocolate.
