The cosy "Zuid" area (South)
One of the most interesting, diverse and dynamic neighborhoods in Antwerp, the style that sticks out is Art Nouveau with as best example the remarkable housing complex "˜The Five Continents' better known as the little boat. The amazing facade with the projecting ship stern certainly catches the eye! Another major attraction is the impressive neoclassical Royal Museum of Fine Arts, with a very large Rubens collection. Help U Zelve building shows off revolutionary Art Nouveau features in stone, iron and mosaic. The Photography and Contemporary Art Museum add a more modern edge to this neighborhood. Wander around this great artists' district on a sunny day and be amazed by the many historical buildings, monuments, museums and galleries.
