Visiting Bruges

Visiting Bruges

Bruges is a city that will capture your heart. It is a city of human proportions, but one that can never be truly fathomed. Its history has made it great, a fact that garnered it the title of a Unesco World Heritage City. Retaining the mysteries of the Middle Ages and unashamedly exuberant, Bruges has been an international metropolis for centuries.
The Bruges Begijnhof (beguinage) has been a World Heritage Site since 1998. The belfry was added a year later, and in 2000 the entire historic centre of Bruges was placed on the list. In 2009 the annual event, the Procession of the Holy Blood, was also identified as intangible cultural heritage. Bruges not only has a valuable architectural heritage and history, it is also fame for its brick-Gothic buildings. The original and integrated medieval fabric of the city has also been retained.
