Why should you visit Bruges

Bruges was originally a coastal settlement during the Bronze and Iron Age, and then began to develop into an important tidal port, integral to trade throughout Europe. Bruges location has long been a strategic point for the city and during history has always been used for southern trade routes and the commercial trade of cotton and spice. Although nowadays the city is not the port it used to be, its history shines through with traditional buildings and quirky housing.

With cobbled streets and historic churches, this city is taken out of a fairy-tale. Little market squares strewn the centre, interlinked by canals gently flowing throughout the city. Walk among the medieval buildings and take in the stunning architecture. With chocolate shops laying in between the historic buildings it is hard to tear yourself away from the main shopping areas and venture outside the shopping districts, but further afield you will find peace and quiet and beautiful areas that are not often explored by tourists.
