Hasselt, Koning Albertstraat
Belgium

This is the beginning of the mainstreet in the city of Hasselt, it's called the "Koning Albertstraat".

The statue of the horses is a work of the artist Jan Desmarets.

The intersection and traffic lights in the background make part of the Green Boulevard, also known as the "kleine ring" (inner ring). The inner ring forms some kind of border; almost the whole area inside of the inner ring is pedestrian / shopping zone.

More About Belgium

Belgium is a country in northwest Europe. Founding member of the European Union, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometres and has a population of about 10.7 million. From the end of the Middle Ages until the 17th century, it was a prosperous centre of commerce and culture. Upon its independence, Belgium eagerly participated in the Industrial Revolution and, at the end of the nineteenth century, possessed several colonies in Africa. Today, Belgium's strongly globalized economy and its transportation infrastructure are integrated with the rest of Europe. Its location at the heart of a highly industrialized region helps made it 2007 the world's 15th largest trading nation. Cultural life is nowadays concentrated within each language community and a variety of barriers have made a shared cultural sphere less pronounced. Anyway, the region corresponding to today's Belgium has seen the flourishing of major artistic movements that have had tremendous influence on European art and culture. Text extracted from wikipedia.
