Liege is an amazing Belgian city, which is known as the largest city in the Walloon Region. Liege is also the third largest municipality of Belgium, with only Brussels and Antwerp ahead. This city is situated in the area of merging of two rivers - Orth and Maas, but, of course, not this fact attracts tourists, but an unusually long history comparing to other cities of Belgium. Here you will see excellent museums, which provide valuable information about the history and culture of the city, as well as old houses and buildings that prove the existence of the Mosan style of architecture.
Liege is considered the city of metallurgists, gunsmiths and manufacturers of cut glass. You will be truly amazed by its lively streets, numerous avenues, squares and parks. The city carefully maintains its ancient traditions as well as items representing Walloon art, which are exhibited in museums of Walloon life. Start your observation of Liege with its central square of St. Lambert. Once a beautiful cathedral named after this saint was standing on the square, but after the French Revolution it was turned into ruins. Some items from the cathedral that have survived as well as its model can be viewed at the Museum of Religious Art on Mer Dew Street.
