Lille, Capital of French Flanders

In July 2011, after having departed Brussels that morning, I had the opportunity to explore a small amount of Lille while waiting for a train to Paris. I did not wander far from the train station, and would like to go back for a longer period of time.

Splendid city shots! Well done, mate, even for a short wait in the city! And what I find particularly interesting are the rows upon rows of neatly-organized (nearly same heights) blocks of buildings and apartments.. Reminds me of the grand plan for Paris.

Definitely would like to visit that city someday.

Thanks for your comments! Lille was interesting because it was kind of in between Belgium and Paris. A nice mix of Belgian and French architecture styles.

wow! Lille comes as a surprise for me with all those beautifully built buildings.
It looks like it wasn't damaged during the last world war unlike most of the European cities.

France is a melting pot with neighboring countries.

this is one big and beautiful city and I assume it's adjacent to the Flanders in Belgium?

The metro area of Lille-Roubaix-Tourcoing goes across the border into Wallonia (Mouscron) and Flanders (Kortrijk). The conurbation has 2million inhabitants.

Such a strange yet familiar looking city, Lille. Great Flemish/French mix.

Beautiful-looking city. The mix of Belgium and France is fantastic. Without a doubt, France has some of the most beautiful cities in Europe and the world.

Ótimas fotos; depois de Paris, a cidade mais bonita da França é Lille; uma mistura de Paris com Bruxelas. Cumprimentos pelo thread. Um grande abraço.
