Beautiful Bruges is one of Europe’s most enchanting cities. While a relatively small city, it is packed with cobbled streets, charming boutiques and amazingly preserved medieval architecture.

Explore the city's peaceful nooks and crannies, but also embrace the tourist must sees, must dos and must eats. Indulge in delicious Belgian chocolates, enjoy a locally brewed beer and take a scenic boat ride on its web of canals, the perfect vantage point for some stunning shots.
