Doel, 9130 Beveren, Belgium
Graffiti Art in a Vanishing Belgian TownIf you're up for a unique and slightly strange experience, head to the abandoned town of Doel, near Antwerp, to view some incredible street art.
The town of Doel has been mostly abandoned, although there are a few stubborn folk who refuse the buyouts offered to expand the city's port. Doel has become a canvas for graffiti artists, poets, and those who just come to see it before it disappears.
Doel is home to a nuclear power plant with the dubious honour of being first on the list of nuclear plants in Europe surrounded by densely populated areas. There is a strange disparity between the still busy local pub and nearby children’s play area and the cooling towers billowing steam in the background.
