Bruges is a small city located an hour from Belgium. After coming from Brussels, the size is contrasting. However, the small size does not mean it doesn’t pack a punch. A UNESCO-listed old town, architecturally rich with well-preserved authentic gems.
As you make your way from the train station to the city centre, (a short 10-minute walk), you come across a multitude of different building styles, sizes and demeanours. From tiny windows to crooked doors, to gates and different colours.
It started in the Industrial Revolution with Gothic Architecture with its full-on Gothic extravagance amid splendid colours, ornate altars and religiously themed art.
Walking in Bruges
Walking really is the best way to see the city of Bruges with its cobbled streets and winding roads, the romance of the city makes it hard not to fall in love with beauty at every turn.
