Antwerp, Belgium

January 20, 2006
Antwerp, the second largest city in Belgium, is visible in this KOMPSAT image. The city is Belgium's principal port, and indeed is one of Europe's major ports. The city was also home to the first Stock Exchange in the 15th century, and since grew into a major commercial trading post. And indeed is still famed for its diamond industry.
