England comprises the central and southern parts of Great Britain which lies in the North Atlantic, separate from continental Europe. The country is the largest of the four “home nations” that make up the United Kingdom and also includes over 100 smaller islands including the Isle of Wight and the Isles of Scilly.
London is the capital city of both England and the United Kingdom. The vast and diverse metropolitan region is a global capital of finance, culture and fashion.
Belgium is situated in West Europe, bordered by France to the Southwest, Luxembourg to the Southeast, Germany to the east, Netherlands to the North and a Northwest coast on the North Sea.
Although Belgium is widely known for its key role in European Union administration, it also boasts as many as 35 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Belgium as such a small nation is one of the most multicultural places in Europe, and is sometimes called Europe in a nutshell.
