The peaceful city of Bruges is located in the Flemish Region of Belgium. Mostly known for its meandering canals, medieval architecture, and a range of delicacies to both eat and drink, this small Belgian city is a delight to discover.
Bruges is home to some of the best-preserved medieval buildings in the world, allowing visitors to wander through the cobbled streets and truly feel whisked back in time. With its many small squares and quaint streets, it's easy to see why the city is seen as one of the world's most romantic cities.
Like most of Belgium, Bruges is a mecca for food and drink. With the worldwide fame of Belgian beer, it's no surprise that the city is home to the Beer Museum and several breweries with daily tours. Bruges' largest beer shop, "2be Beer Wall,'' offers an endless variety of beer, but there is no shortage of smaller bars to sample the local crafts. If the beer doesn't entice you, then perhaps world-famous Belgian chocolates will. Almost every street in Bruges has a chocolate shop, making it near impossible to resist the temptation to sample some. Hey, dark chocolate is healthy, right?
Belgium's excellent rail system makes it easy to travel to Bruges. Trains arrive from Brussels every 30 mins, easily connecting Bruges to Brussels' Airport. International bus services also provide access to the city from many other European destinations.
