Antwerp is a city and municipality in Belgium and the capital of the Antwerp province of Flanders. It is located on the eastern bank of the river Scheldt, which is linked to the North Sea by the estuary Westerschelde. The city has one of the largest seaports in Europe. Is known for its diamonds. The main attraction is the beautiful old town with a fourteenth-sixteenth-century cathedral and castle.

The statue called Brabo is inspired by a legend of a giant who used to live on the banks of the river Scheldt. Whenever sailors on the Scheldt refused to pay toll, he punished them by cutting off their hand. A Roman soldier called Silvius Brabo, killed the giant, cut off his hand and threw it in the river.
