Belgium has a rich and impressive history due to its geographically central position in Europe. Traditionally goods from abroad were delivered oversea. To improve transportation of these goods over land, a whole network of canals, linking the Belgian rivers, has been developed over time. Some (of the older) canals were adapted to support the upcoming water tourism. Now, there is almost unlimited potential to discover Belgium through narrow and meandering routes. Most renowned example of a romantic waterway is probably the Old Lys, a meandering river with many views on beautiful state houses along its path.
