Charlerloi – Belgium

 

 

Charleroi was once an important industrial centre. For coal mines but also steel plants were here on a large scale. After all the steel mills and coal mines were closed became the city a good example of past glory.

Although the dreariness of Charleroi dominates the city has a lot of fine things to offer. Still, Charleroi is worth a visit because of the working atmosphere in the city, the market on the Charles II square on Sunday morning is a must!

As for example the beautiful old city hall or Belfort to the same square. The second is even on the Unesco World Heritage list. Further is also the Sint-Christoffel Church worth a visit when you visit Charleroi.
