Bruges is so steeped in history, you’ll be forgiven for believing you’ve gone back in a time capsule to the 15th century.
Cobbled streets lined with gilded houses make for a picturesque setting, Bruges is so beautiful you will be lost in awe, as you walk down the streets, and along the canals. It is no surprise then that this prominent city is listed as a World Heritage Site of UNESCO.
I was first drawn to Bruges, Belgium, I’m sure like many others, after watching the 2008 comic caper, In Bruges, starring Colin Farrel and Ciarán Hinds. The film although sinister in context showed off many of the beautiful landmarks of Bruges and was placed firmly on my bucket list of places to visit.
If you’re planning your next trip to Europe then why not make Bruges, and many of the other cities in Belgium, your next destination. Here are my top tips; how to get there, where to stay, what to eat, what to see and do, and of course my discoveries.
