French Community of Belgium (fr. Communauté française de Belgique, niderl. Franse Gemeenschap van België) – one of three official communities of Belgium. This is an institution which is involved in the development of the French language in this country. Therefore works in the field of culture, education, science and international cooperation. Its coverage includes the greater part of Wallonia (with the exception of municipalities inhabited by a minority of German) and the Brussels-Capital Region.
In respect of the Community, the French used the names: the Wallonia-Brussels (Communauté Wallonie-Bruxelles), or the French Community Wallonia-Brussels (Communauté française Wallonie-Bruxelles), although none of them do not appear in the Belgian constitution. According to some the name suggests a link between the community and the French region of Wallonia, while they are two different institutions.

In Belgium, the euro was introduced in 2002. However, the first sets of coins were minted, as preparation, in 1999. Hence the first euro coins of Belgium have minted the year 1999 instead of 2002 like other countries in the eurozone. In order to conform to the common guidelines on the design of national faces of coins, Belgium has updated the design of the Belgian national face of euro coins to be produced from 2008; also adopted the new common map like the rest of the eurozone countries.
Belgium has a rich collection of collectors’ coins, with face value ranging from 10 to 100 euro. These coins are a legacy of an old national practice of minting of silver and gold commemorative coins. Unlike normal issues, these coins are not legal tender in all the eurozone. For instance, a €10 Belgian commemorative coin cannot be used in any other country.
While all Belgian coins designated for circulation show the portrait of King Albert II, this does not happen for commemorative coins, where designs are freely chosen.

Home to Europe’s best-preserved medieval buildings, Bruges is Belgium’s most visited town. Suspended in time 500 years ago by the silting of its river, this 13th-century city is blessed with two medieval cores, the Markt and the Burg, and some of the country’s most compelling art collections.
In the middle of summer Bruges teems with tourists; out of season its beauty is an easier delight to behold. The whole historic centre of Bruges was added to Unesco’s World Heritage List in 2000 and, in 2002, Bruges took centre stage as the European City of Culture.

There’s a reason radio DJs in Belgium love the Beatles’ 1969 classic Here Comes the Sun . The weather here is fickle, and when the sun comes out everyone celebrates. To avoid major dampness coupled with biting cold, plan a visit for May to September (ie late spring to early autumn). The disadvantages of this time include considerable crowds and, depending on where exactly you go, a scarcity of accommodation – Bruges is the most problematic in both these areas. Brussels, on the other hand, is actually quieter during summer (mid-July to mid-September), and some hotels cut prices.
In April the weather is more fickle than ever – you’ll be catching sun on a terrace cafe one minute and scuttling for cover the next. Wretched is the only word suitable for the mild winter weather from November to March: the days are grey and wet with occasional light snow. Correspondingly, tourist numbers plummet. If you pack the right clothes and keep in mind that the daylight hours will be short, you can make the most of uncrowded museums. The lion’s share of events take place over summer. Outside this time, there are a few quirky festivals to consider, the highlight being carnival celebrations.
