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.

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.
