Belgium: Dinant

The small town of Dinant seems to be taken from the pages of some fairytale in its picturesque setting – stretches along the shore of river Meuse with a beautiful gothic church – Notre Dame – in the middle and a steep sheer vertical limestone cliff rising right behind the single row of houses with a medieval fortress – Citadel of Dinant – on top. The views are stunning from everywhere, but especially if you ride the cable car to the citadel and look down on the twisting river and the tiny town below.
