Get your news from the heart of Europe: have a look on some Belgian Francophone newspapers

Located at the heart of the European Union, the little kingdom of Belgium has a striving press industry that gives you daily news about Belgian and European topics. Its two main dailies are Le Soir (centre-right newspaper with a strong Brusselian identity) and La Libre Belgique (centre-right, catholic oriented). If you are interested in sports news, with a particular attention to European football, then La Dernière Heure - Les Sports is made for you. Belgium counts also qualitative Francophone news weekly, as Le Vif - L'Express (belonging to the same press group as the French L'Express) or Trends - Tendance, specialised in economic news. And if you prefer having a comprehensive tour of the Belgian press in one glance, you can always go browsing in the world's first electronic kiosk "Gopress.be".
