Provinces

As you can see, most of the provinces share their name with the main city (or the nearby country), which makes is a bit complicated. But remember that France has a region called "Flemish Ardennes", and the Netherlands also have a few BrabantBrabants, all for historical reasons.

Wallonia

Understand

Nowadays, Wallonia is one of the three federal regions of Belgium (the other two being Flanders and Brussels). This means that it has its own government, a parliament and separate laws. The capital of Wallonia is Namur, near its geographic center.

Wallonia used to have a very good economy, mostly based on charcoal-industry. After the World Wars the industry didn't renew itself fast enough. Because of that the economy is now lacking behind Flanders.

Talk

The official language of Wallonia is French, and foreign languages are definitely not so widely understood as in Flanders. However, in the most touristic locations, a significant improvement has been achieved in the last, say, 20 years.
