This picture has been taken almost four month ago, during a visit to Antwerp, one Flemish city with a world port.
Two year ago I placed a picture out of the same interior, but out of the other side.
A new camera and another lens bring a better picture, also a little bit more experience.
Also a very nice shopping street 'De Meir' completely car free.

October 2007 25 opened the most prestigious project of Antwerp its doors.
Nearly 7 years after the devastating fire was “Stadsfeestzaal” back in its full glory restored, and they got a new destination as' Antwerp Shopping Hot Spot'.
Some 40 shops, including a number of pilot stores of international brands in a unique historical setting with modern accents know absolutely captivate visitors.
On weekdays an average of 25 000 visitors find their way into the Stadsfeestzaal. On Saturdays runs this number to 30 000 visitors and sporadic Sunday openings get 'The Pride of Antwerp' more than 40 000 visitors on the floor!
Antwerp is the real urban deal, a refreshingly down-to-earth yet vivacious cosmopolitan habitat blessed with magnificent architecture, fashionable shop fronts, beer-washed pubs, dazzling monuments, jazzed-up clubs, inspired artworks and restaurant tables piled with plates of superb Belgian and multicultural food. Antwerp, home of the Flemish Baroque master Rubens, not only has a wealth of outstanding museums, picturesque galleries, sculpted streets and beautiful architecture, but is also laced with refreshing greenery and urban haunts. Its culture, history, vibrant nightlife and world class shopping are within easy reach, thanks to excellent access by air, train, motorway and even water. Antwerp, a pocket size metropolis.

I hope you like it,
