Now that you have learned a little about Wallonia it is time to visit the real Belgium here in The Gallery of the Flemish Region.

The Flemish Region comprises 5 provinces, each consisting of administrative arrondissements which in turn contain municipalities (in total 308 municipalities in Flanders).
