11/36.- Flanders: Oostende, the Visserskaai
Oostende is one of the main Belgian seaside resorts along the 70-km Belgian coast on the North Sea. It is linked to Brussels by the first highway ever built in Belgium, and which is chronically congested on week-ends. The visserskaai (Fishermen's Quay) runs from the railroad station to the beach. As the name suggests, fishing-boats dock here and sell their seafood produce on the busy quay, which is lined with seafood restaurants. A little farther Southwards, the Royal Family has its seaside villa. There is also a casino and a horse racing track.
