In Life by Continental StaffLeave a Comment

This week at the Current we ventured to the Low Countries to explore Belgium, highlighted some of Europe’s best medieval cities, explored the most highly traded currencies in the world, and more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.



Belgium was our Country of the Week. We delved into the eventful history of this centrally located European country, as well as a culture that is responsible for quite a few extraordinary things! See our profile HERE.

In our Travel Guide we took on all that Belgium had to offer. Global cities, fairy-tale locales, tons of castles, historical battlefields, beautiful rural regions, and much more are all within easy reach in this great country. Get our guide HERE.

As always with our eurozone countries, we took some time with our Currency Spotlight to revisit the all-important euro. It’s always in the news, and it’s always important to understand the ins and outs of this unique currency. Read more HERE.

Best Medieval Cities in Europe


We took a trip into the past this week as we set off around Europe in search of the finest medieval cities on the continent. There were so many, it was tough to narrow them down – but we still did! From France and England to Spain and the Czech Republic; see what we think the 6 best medieval cities in Europe are HERE.
