The medieval city centre of Bruges has been preserved to this day; in fact the city centre has been added to the Unesco’s world heritage list. The buildings are hundreds of years old. Bruges is part of Flanders, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium in the north part of the country.

 


 


Canals


Take a cruise on the canals. This is a must do as you can really see a different side to this wonderful city. Not all of the canals run along streets.
