Product Description:
The Medieval and Baroque architecture, artwork and religious buildings of Antwerp are treasures to behold - rich in significance, beauty and depth.

Tragically, many travel guides simply brush over the beautifully creative structures and artworks as mere items to check off a list during sightseeing in Antwerp, which has become a fine gem in the pantheon of Flemish culture.

By contrast, Antwerp - A Travel Guide of Art and History is designed for tourists wanting to achieve an in-depth understanding during their perusals of the wondrous achievements in painting, sculpture and design pioneered and proliferated within Antwerp. Rich yet accessible descriptions of the most significant works from the Dutch and Flemish pantheons of art offer guidance through the hidden gems and old town districts, spurring the reader to sublime comprehension.

This book is designed as a companion to a more general city guide, to be read as you tour and take in the many breathtaking works of art and ancient architectural design that confer majesty to the fashionably cosmopolitan city of Antwerp. The Cathedral of our Lady is richly described, with the Grote Markt and its surrounding districts receiving due consideration. Details of the Baroque and Renaissance era buildings, their purpose and their influence are described, bringing to life what might otherwise be incomprehensible, or merely baubles in a general tour.

In reading this book - part of a series on Belgian cities composed by lecturer of art and heritage architecture Maxime Jensens - you will imbue your journey with enlightenment and knowledge.

When you finish your journey to Antwerp, you will not simply carry happy memories of having seen and enjoyed the gorgeous culture, cuisine and fine hospitality - but a vivid, intense understanding of how significant and inseparable this city's art and architecture are from its nature and essential verve.

Antwerp, Belgium Travel Guide - Sightseeing, Hotel, Restaurant & Shopping Highlights (Illustrated)
 
Product Description:
With a name synonymous with the finest diamonds money can buy, it is no wonder that many visitors flock to Antwerp, Belgium each year. While the streets may not be paved with these precious jewels, this gorgeous city still has many amazing attractions for the traveler.

Antwerp is the second largest city in Belgium, with a population of 500,000 in what the locals like to call the “Metropolis,” which is the metropolitan area. Referred to as the “Daughter of the River Scheldt,” Antwerp has the second largest harbor in Europe, bringing a vast array of cultures and products into the city. It is this grand harbor that at one time in history made the city one of the most influential in the world. When the Spanish took over the city in 1585, the city’s influence was replaced by Amsterdam, and the city fell into a slump until the 19th century when economic growth began to return the city to its former splendor.

This economic growth is visible in many different areas around the city today. While the 15th century architecture is one attraction, the modern architecture and contemporary artistic influences brought by a changing economy are also a draw for travelers. With picturesque views of the old world meeting the new, you can be sure that Antwerp will shine like a diamond in your memories for years.
