Charleroi Mini Guide
Charleroi means King Charles in French or Belgian and this is the fifth largest city in Belgium and part of the province of Wallonia. This area of Belgium is big in the coal and steel mining industry. Charleroi has something of a gritty and run down reputation so it is not that popular with Belgians nor tourists but the airport there is very well known.
Brussels Charleroi Airport is a real hub for many low cost flights with airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet. Some of the routes which are in operation are to Djerba, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Monastir, Murcia, Tangier and Tenerife South. More than five million people use the airport every year. Quite a few hotels are located around the airport for those who are in transit. For a reliable place to stay you can try the Best Western Charleroi at 1A Boulevard Mayence, 6000 Charleroi.

They are the Site du bois du Cazier a Marcinelle, the Museum of Photography Charleroi at 11 Avenue Paul Pastur, the Musee archeologique and the Musee des Beaux Arts to name but a few. When walking around Charleroi stay away from any neighbourhoods in the lower end of town, especially those which have graffiti as they are gang controlled.
