Tournai (Flemish Doornik)
A city located in the Walloon part of Belgium, on the Scheldt River, in the Hainaut province. What distinguishes them is not only beautiful architecture, but also a turbulent history. Tournai already existed in the 1st century BC during the Roman Empire. It was then called Turnacum in Latin. Over the centuries, it was ruled by: kings from the Merovingian and Carolingian families, kings of France, England, and the rulers of the Habsburg family. During the Second World War, the city suffered great damage as a result of bombing by German troops. After the end of hostilities, the dilapidated old town was carefully reconstructed. Thanks to this, to this day many tourists from all over the world can admire beautiful monuments, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
