Flanders is synonymous with heritage. Our famed Flemish Masters’ genius and inimitable craftsmanship helped move art history in a different direction. Since then, many generations of creative people have followed their example, both in the arts and in other areas. We have castles and cathedrals, churches and belfries, tapestries and beguinages, artistic masterpieces and entire historic city centres. All attest to Flanders’ rich cultural heritage.
History is also present at Flanders Fields, which stand as silent but deafening witness to the First World War, bearing a message of universal peace. Flanders’ rich legacy is tangible, something which can be seen and felt.
