Antwerp is the second largest port in Europe after Rotterdam, and the second most populous city in the country. Here you can find many historical buildings that speak about the economic well-being of the capital of Flanders. In 1531, one of the first exchanges in the world was built in Antwerp.

Walking along the river Scheldt, you will see the XVIII century house-a Museum of Plantin and Moretus printing houses, where scientists and humanists of the XVI century were printed. Further along the embankment is the house of the butchers' Guild of the XIV century, which today houses the Museum of music history. Not far away is the majestic castle of the Walls, the first fortress in the city. Also, on the Scheldt is a Museum on the river — an unusual building, which is a 9-storey tower made of red stone. If you walk up the stairs, you will get a new view of Antwerp every time. The Museum is dedicated to navigation, Ethnography and folklore.
