Dunkirk
Dunkirk The Essential
Beyond Dunkerque's famous carnival, which transforms it into a gigantic, joyous ball, the town has another trump card: the incomparable good humour of its inhabitants. Further selling points include its Unesco World Heritage-listed belfry, interesting art museums, a lively seafront lined with Art Deco villas and, a stone's throw away, the major site of the Dunes de Flandres, a great place for walking. Not to mention its port, which boosts the local economy with its industrial activity.
