    Name: Derives from the city of Dunkirk. It's hard to come to Dunkirk without strolling along its beach, or see its 10km dyke, its harbour, and maybe also its Port Museum. The city's agitated military history has resulted in the destruction of a good part of its historical heritage. The town hall dates from the early 20th century, but is nevertheless listed as World Heritage by the UNESCO, along with the 15th-century belfry.

    Well before the Dunkirk Privateers became the terror of the North Sea, the Leughenaer Tower ("liar tower") fooled ships to run ashore on the numerous seabanks instead of leading them to the harbour, so that they could be plundered. The local Fine Arts Museum, on Place du Général de Gaulle, has a large collection of Flemish, Italian and French paintings and sculptures
