Bruges (Brugge in Dutch) is located in the northwest of Belgium. It is a nice place to spend a day walking around, and that’s what we did.
After getting off the train, we randomly picked a direction and started walking. We knew there was a market square like almost every city/town in Europe, and a pretty famous tower. We thought this was it…
But we were wrong. So after admiring Saint Salvator’s Cathedral (as it turned out to be), we turned the other direction in search of the tower (Belfry). Here it was at last…
We climbed up many stairs to the top and got wonderful views of the city and surroundings, not to mention the good exercise.
Back to the ground level, we walked around the Markt (market square), had lunch in a street-side cafe, marvelled at the beautifully decorated buildings, and watched people.
In the afternoon we walked along the canals enjoying a moment of quiet and peace.
This concluded a wonderful day in Bruges. Perhaps it is a good time to watch the movie ‘In Bruges’ just to admire the scenaries once again on screen. 🙂
