Stylish and confident, the appeal of Belgium's second city extends far beyond its gritty dockland heritage. Modern Antwerp combines high fashion with a medieval Old Town and a vibrant nightlife scene. Much like its eclectic, forward-thinking nature, this is a city where dining is an international, trendy affair and shopping for the latest quirky designer yet-to-be-discovered is de rigeur. And the diamonds... The figures are sparkling: 80% of the world's rough diamonds and 50% of its cut diamonds are traded here annually.
