Evening Stroll In Antwerp
The weather was so nice yesterday evening, so we had a nice walk trough the old part of town and along the river banks. A nice chance for me to practice my photography skills.
The 'Zuiderterras' is one of the very few places where you can sit right next to the river Schelde and have a drink or something to eat. It's been a while since I was here, but the food is quite good.
The Cathedral of Our Lady, as seen from the southern terrace next to the river.
The skyline of the leftbank.
These statues guard the entrance of the Zuiderterras, one of two terraces that follow the river bank. No better place for a warm evening, to look at the boats passing by.
This cold modern building near the northern end of the Noorderterras got a nice warm glow from the setting sun.
The church of Saint-Paul's overlooks the red light district, giving a stern look at the sins of the flesh commited nearby.
One of the many pubs in the old city.
Antwerp has more Irish pubs than Dublin! Well, almost...
The main tower of the Cathedral of Our Lady dominates the city centre.
