Mahratta's Showcase: Antwerp

Here we are, pictures of Antwerp.

For now, I'll put up pictures of two specific areas. The remaining pictures of the historical centre will be up soon afterwards.

I don't understand what "chateau" and which art-deco area you are referring to. (perhaps you meant art nouveau?)

Lovely pictures so far, hope to see more soon.

Yeah, you're right, art nouveau.

Stunning. Reminds me of a very ornate Philadelphia.

Never thought of it as a castle, but I suppose you could call it that.

That's the name! I had forgotten it...all I remembered was that it was a castle.

Sorry for the delay, folks. Midterms are really hectic. Once I'm done uploading all the Leuven pictures I'll got on Antwerp right away
