Brabant Lace - Brussels, Belgium
We travel to Brussels, however, not for this reason. The reason for this trip was the El Greco exhibition (april 2010). Well, to be honest - our expectations were not completely satisfied.
But at least we could see the El Greco's works from the Spanish collections that we might never visit ...
The capital of the historical Duchy of Brabant, the city is associated primarily with Mechlin lace and tapestries.
Southern part of Brabant is in Belgium, northern - in the Netherlands. In North Brabant is spoken Flemish, in South (Belgian) Brabant is divided into Flemish language part and Walloon language part. And Brussels is a bilingual city.
