Belgium is a small country of just over 30,520sq km, with a population density of just under 332 people per sq km, one of the world's highest. Its geographical structure almost exactly mirrors it language divide. Flanders has the coastline, while Wallonia, including its small German-speaking area, has it heartland in the glacier-sculpted hills and forests of the Ardennes.
Few countries are better placed to claim ownership of that greatly desired piece of real estate known as the 'Heart of Europe'. The Channel Tunnel comes ashore close to the Belgian border, while some of Europe's most important road and rail links intersect at Brussels, Antwerp and Liège. These facts complement Brussels' role as 'Capital of Europe' and Antwerp's as Europe's second port (after Rotterdam).
