Lille - Capital of French Flanders

In July 2011, after having departed Brussels that morning, I had the opportunity to explore a small amount of Lille while waiting for a train to Paris. I did not wander far from the train station, and would like to go back for a longer period of time.

Just another ho-hum Belgian city.

Thanks for sharing.

Yet another French city I've never seen in person. Nice petite promenade, huh? the historic core looks well preserved on your pictures.

Kind of. Ho-hum is a proper joke, the area covered by the thread seems to feature a super nice historic diversity. It's got some Germanic touch that's actually spread over several northern regions of the country, especially those neighboring Germany and Belgium of course, but you'll find a bit of it in Paris too occasionally.

However, the light gray stone building with the European flag, for instance, looks pretty unusual to me. It really feels Dutch or German:

That's just France anyway, that massive mix of everything around.
