A Day In Bruges

We were told that “any visitor to Bruges should take a boat trip along its picturesque canals.” So we did.

The view of the bell tower and old houses is the essence of Bruges. The tower title? Yep, it leans about four feet, and has been carefully monitored since 1740, no change has been detected:

 

Cruising through the canal makes you understand why this is called the Venice of the North.

This medieval hospital and chapel was one of the oldest in Europe, and is now a museum housing works painted

In the last half of the 19th century, Bruges became one of the world’s first tourist destinations attracting wealthy British and French tourists.

Here are some the beautiful architecture of Bruge. The style is different from Amsterdam, even these two cities are only 2-hour train distance.

This sculpture is reminding us the garbage we have created everyday …

We had experienced a record-break heat weave in this part of Europe. It was not pleasant, say the least, but we endured.

Thank you for visiting!

    • The last time we visited Venice was 13 years ago, and we complained how crowded it was…
      It’s not crowded in Bruges, but a lot of people at the Market place.
      Thank you for visiting, Sue!

  2. It’s really too bad that you were there during the horrendous heatwave, Amy! It must have been hard to maintain the active schedule of an eager traveler! But your photos are wonderful and really show Bruges’ beauty!

    • Besides, most places donโ€™t serve water with lots of ice like we do here. Hubby complained about the beer was not even cold.
      Thank you for stopping by. Hope the weather is cooler where you are. ๐Ÿ™‚
