I received this great card from my friend Olga! Danke Olgipolgi you’re the best ♥
Antwerp is a city in Belgium which is the capital of Antwerp province. With a population of 510,610 it is the most populous city in Belgium. Its metropolitan area houses around 1,200,000 people.
Antwerp has long been an important city in the Low Countries, both economically and culturally, especially before the Spanish Fury (1576) in the Dutch Revolt. The inhabitants of Antwerp are nicknamed Sinjoren, after the Spanish honorific señor or French seigneur, “lord”, referring to the Spanish noblemen who ruled the city in the 17th century.

The world’s first printed newspaper was published in Antwerp nearly 400 years ago.
