A Weekend in Bruges, Belgium

A Weekend in Bruges, Belgium, Brugge, Belgium (B)

Let’s be honest, Bruges is definitely one of the most romantic cities in Europe which easily gets overlooked by its popular neighbor, Paris as well as Venice. Bruges is often called the “Venice of the North” with its crisscrossing canals which encloses its historic center making it one of the most beautiful canal cities in Europe. Whether you take a stroll during the day or during the night, romance will certainly be found in this quaint town as you stroll hand in hand.

It is also more than just an easy day trip from Brussels. It is so much more beneficial to your health to slow travel, really enjoy the sights and take in the atmosphere.
