Durbuy is a francophone Belgian city, considered to be “the smallest town in the world” (title given in the 14th century, which nowadays is not justified anymore, because Durbuy’s population grew and today has around 11 000 inhabitants). There are narrow cobbled streets, flowers at windows, romantic restaurants, a castle and a hill that can be climbed for a panoramic view.
Durbuy e un oras Belgian francofon, considerat ‘cel mai mic oras din lume’ (titlu atribuit in sec. al XIV-lea si care nu mai e justificat in ziua de azi, deoarece populatia orasului a atins in jur de 11000 de locuitori). Are stradute pavate cu piatra, flori la ferestre, restaurante romantice, un castel si un deal in apropiere de unde poti vedea orasul.

Lovely town and nice pictures…(Suzanne)
It’s pretty, right? 🙂
Lovely pics. It’s not something I expected when I left Australia after 40 years for North Cyprus, but I love being back in Europe and the Middle East.
Castelul din centru ce este in ziua de astăzi?
Salut! E un castel privat care nu se viziteaza 🙂
I like the photo of the man in green with binoculars! Made me giggle
😀 he is cute, but I thought he was a frog, not a man… 😀
Interesting looking place – love the cobblestones. MM 🍀
Hi Mick! I like cobblestones too (but not when I am wearing high heels) 😀
I wonder what made them claim the world’s smallest town title. That castle does look quite big for a small town like Durbuy. However it looks like I can spend a few days just walking around and lazying down at this town. Beautiful!
It was named city in the 14th century and it remained with this title ever since (even though nowadays is not justified anymore, as the population grew).
That’s too bad that you can’t visit the castle, but I understand. If I could have a castle overlooking a European city and didn’t have to let tourists in, I would too. 🙂
First class photos!
I really need to get out of the boring country I live in! That place look amazing!
Hi Rob, Canada is a huge place, I’m sure is not boring 😀 but yeah, a change of scenery is always welcomed. Do you have plans of traveling to Europe any time soon?
I don’t have any plans, but I think I might make some. I am going to see if I can come up with a work/fun trip. Maybe I can get’n a freelance assignment to get out there haha.
That would be great if you could find something! 🙂
The first comment is about a Canadian who find Belgium awesome… No ? Strange feeling. 😀
