A fun morning in Bruges circling the canals and being reintroduced to the history. Bruges is a remarkably preserved town. We were happy to leave on Saturday because the number of people quadrupled!
some of what I learned…
Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Market square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views. If you want to walk the 366 steps!
it is often called the Venice of the North!
