Bruges – The Capital of West Flanders

Bruges is the capital and largest city of the West Flanders region of Belgium. Much like the cities of Amsterdam and St. Petersburg, Bruges is encompassed by a series of stunning canal. Hence why the city and its counterparts are sometimes referred to as the Venice of the North. So if you’ve ever wanted to take a boat tour down narrow streams which flow between the city centre then this is an ideal place to do it!


Bruges is one of the most well-preserved medieval towns in the world, with most of its original architecture still intact. Hence why it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the city’s most notable medieval buildings is the Church of Our Lady, which has the second highest brick tower in the world! Tourists also can’t possibly visit Bruges without visiting St. Salvador’s Cathedral. It is in this Transept (cross-shaped church) that you’ll find Michelangelo’s sculpture ‘Madonna and Child’, which just so happens to be the only of his sculptures to have left Italy within his lifetime. Most famously in Bruges however is its 13th century Belfry. Within which there are over 47 bells
