When I told my friends I was going to visit Belgium, few of them told me that I HAVE to visit Bruges. I didn’t know what was all the fuzz about this Bruges, but now I do. You won’t find such a magical city anywhere. You will feel like you traveled to the past! It’s like from a fairytale!!
We came there by train from Brussels and when we started to walk around I told my husband: “The only thing that is missing here are horses with carriages”.. And guess what – they do have it!
Bruges is located in the northwest of the country. Like some other canal-based cities, it is sometimes referred to as “The Venice of the North”. But in my humble opinion, it’s more beautiful than Venice!
Of course, we have to try some famous Belgian beer while we were here. I was already pregnant, so I didn’t drink it, but my husband and our friends loved it. And I loved the place! Lots of tourists from all around the world, all kind of beer, great music..
The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. I especially liked the Market square. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that it was raining 🙁
We were there only one day, but it’s not so big, so it’s enough time to see everything. And would I like to go back there one day? DEFINITELY!
