    Fraternization

    sign boards

    Favorite thing: As you can see on this picture, Raismes is fraternised with the German village of Eisleben.

    That is also a kind of tradition, as most villages in this region, al have one or more sister-villages in another European country.

    Raismes is also part of the Natural Park Region of Scarpe - Escaut. Scarpe and Escaut are two rivers who are passing in this region. (Escaut is the French translation of the Scheld River)

    Working at the Coal mine

    coal wagon

    Favorite thing: In this region there were lots of coal mines.

    I think nowadays all these mines are closed.

    But you still can see this in every village which was once connected with these mines. As on several places you see these typical coal wagons. Mostly they are beautifully painted and filled with colourful flowers.
