Heavy industry was once blooming in the south of Luxembourg. The biggest city there - Esch-sur-Alzette is still a center of steel production in the country and one of the biggest employers is the steel giant - Arcelor. But the production now is reduced and part of the infrastructure stands unused.

Currently the place is being transformed into a commercial and entertainment center Belval, also there is a university campus planned. You can still see the old, unused steelworks furnaces located next to the modern buildings. It such a picturesque location but it is not possible to get really close or enter inside those castles of steel and iron.

Content of one of the above photos was slightly edited (apart from the usual touch up). Which one? ;)
