Leuven - Belgium

Leuven is the capital of the province of Flemish Brabant in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located about 30 kilometers east of Brussels.

The township comprises the historical city of Leuven and the former municipalities of Heverlee, Kessel-Lo, a part of Korbeek-Lo, Wilsele and Wijgmaal.

It is home to InBev (largest Beer Company of the world ) and to the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the largest Belgian university, the largest and oldest university of the Low Countries and the oldest Catholic university still in existence.

Very nice second set of pictures... since I made them myself! :-)
Personally I really don't mind but that's not really what the Urban Showcase is about.

Wow! I had no idea that Leuven was so beautiful! Actually it's the first time I see pictures of this city! It's really beautiful, a nice surprise for me!

Thanks for sharing these pics! They're great!

Beautiful town with some amazing architecture. The town hall is out of this world. When I looked it up on wiki it seemed a lot of the town was rebuilt after devastation in WWI.

I once paid a very short visit when visiting the Werchter festival. I definitely need to come back.
