Against the Vikings and other Destroyers
Leuven is a simply beautiful capital of the province of Flemish Brabant in Belgium. It is only 16 miles away from Brussels, and a home for the largest hospital in the whole Europe. Leuven once was quite famous for the visits of Vikings: a legend says that one time, when the Vikings came to the area of Leuven, a huge fight took place over there. The fight was so enormous that the shores of the river Dyle were all stained in blood.
