Belgium is a small, densely populated country straddling the cultural boundary between Germanic and Latin Europe. Belgium is home to two main linguistic groups: the Dutch-speaking, mostly Flemish community, which constitutes about 59% of the population, and the French-speaking, primarily Walloon population, which comprises about 40% of all Belgians. There is a small group of German speakers who live in the East Cantons.

Belgium is one of the founders of the European Union and hosts the official seats of the European Commission, the Council of the European Union, and the European Council, as well as a seat of the European Parliament in the country’s capital, Brussels. Brussels hosts several of the EU’s official seats as well as the headquarters of many major international organizations such as NATO.

There are many famous museums in Belgium.
