It was love at first sight for me when I visited Bruges. It’s a photographers dream; houses hang over calm canals, and gothic masterpieces tower over pristine squares. These are unquestionably the photos of Bruges that define the city for me.
From the moment I disembarked the train I knew without a doubt why I had long wished to visit Brugge. Time seems to have paused here with much of the buildings still medieval. The canals help it earn its Venice of the North reputation. Around each corner are more elaborate facades, and ever cuter step gable houses. Unique architecture is its speciality, from its town hall to its churches.
The city is a masterpiece and it undoubtedly ranks as the most beautiful I have ever seen. It is in essence an open air museum, one that’s free to walk and take in its sights at your liberty. When night falls on Bruges it takes on a new appearance, as lights illuminate the canals. Be sure to continue your tour after dark, and appreciate its other side.
This is my valentines week post, so its the perfect time to celebrate my love for this perfect city. I hope you appreciate my 50 photos of Bruges.
