The undiscovered Mechelen
Mechelen is one of the beautiful cities in Belgium. The city unveil the beautiful culture and heritage of this city. Like any city in Europe, the atmosphere of real serene and peace is towering in Mechelen. I arrived there Friday and it was real foggy day, but that does not hinder my excitement to explore the city. Belgium is known for its chocolates and beers. Since beer is not of my appetence..so lets have cognizance of the chocolates. A lot of famous chocolates really comes from Belgium and.. Mechelen..is part of that glamour.Here are to name a few: Godiva..a luxury chocolate known all over the world originates from Belgium..as well as the Neuhaus..which also gain popularity in chocolate industry. They say that homemade things are crafts thats really a work that comes from the Heart...Leonida's chocolate is one of that. One more thing I notice is that confections and sweet foods are just around the corner. In this city you've also got to taste the different culinary of Seafoods. Ive got some pics of thier typical mussel in butter and take note..that is in small serving. It's really amazing! It's super! Aside from the fact that every seafood really delights my heart..this mussels added to it!
The foggy day..does not hinder my city exploration but instead gives me a more superb feeling. It seems like just a nostalgia of my childhood where fairy tales are always in my heart. the picture we have here..thats supposed to take photos of the tower of Sint Romboutskathedraal..shows..like a city from Fairy tales.hehehe..what an imagination! The city hall is just so amazing not to be notice..the artistic style and carvings of the building..were all preserved and maintained.Really fantastic! What's more to notice in a beautiful city like these..is that..few tourist are visible..seems to be really undiscovered..but the good thing is..few tourist means also a more relaxed and more comfort in unveiling its beauty.
It's just a day stay in the place since we have to leave for Netherlands the next day! It's just a small city where you can just take a walk in the heart of it. Short it may seem but I really enjoy my visit and t'was certainly a whale of time. Worth a visit!
