The smallest city in the world – Durbuy


We present you the city of Durbuy in Belgium.
By 1331 the village had a castle, a courthouse and police 
– all the prerequisites to be called a city – 
and was granted city status.

  2. It is really a nice set of photographs. The cobblestone streets represent a lot of work for people sometime in the past. I am surprised the table has been left outside in the weather.

  5. What a lovely place! I love your pictures! What fun a place to discover and explore. The cobblestone streets, the old but charming buildings, the greenery, the winding paths all make for a gem of a place. I really especially love that top picture.

  6. Wow, these are great! What a charming 'city'. The cobblestone's are so old, they are shiny. Any of the building original?

  7. What a great “city”! It looks old with those narrow streets, but is very attractive…I think it would a great place to wander about for a few days. And your photos are excellent, capturing the essence of the city.

  8. Great pictures! Makes me want to go there…but are there any people in that town??? (Just joking, but people are strangely missing in all the photos except for a couple in the one picture!)..or did you take these on a Sunday! Reminds me of some of the small village just outside of Geneva – on a sunday at the end of Winter (I'm half Genevoise!) !! Thanks for sharing your explorations! I'll continue to come back and see where you've been or where you are going!

    If you have a moment, maybe you could stop by my blog: http://the doorhunter.blogspot.com its about doors in Prague.

    Take care

  13. I missed this city! 😦 It's gorgeous! The first shot looks like the set for a movie whose action takes place in the Middle Ages.
