There are twelve exceptional places in Belgium on the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are thirteen begines, dozens of belfries, the old town of Bruges, the main square in Brussels and the unique river lifts on the Du Center. All these wonderful places fully deserve the name of exceptional. They are examples of different architectural styles, and the extraordinary talent of architects and engineers. Today we can admire them largely thanks to UNESCO, which fights for the preservation of the heritage of the past centuries.
