    Bruges reputation for being inundated with almost countless tourists is something you’ll probably hear of well before you arrive, but, fortunately, the huge camera-clad groups roaming the streets aren't quite enough to destroy the appeal of a fantastically picturesque town. Medieval, pretty and constructed over a selection of fantastic looking, Amsterdam-like canals (get your timing right in winter, and you can have a great time skating down them), Bruges implores you to drift amongst its chocolate shops and cobblestoned, roadside restaurants with you're eyes raised to the ornate second storeys and your camera permanently drawn.

    The Basilica of the Holy Blood is an astonishing, rustic old building that supposedly contains a phial of Christ’s blood brought back from the crusades; the phial itself will underwhelm anyone of minimal religious bent, but the astounding old architecture is well worth a trip. The Church of Our Lady is another astonishing religious spot, home to a Michelangelo’s masterpiece Madonna and Child, and dating back to the 12th century.

    Another ancient sight well worth checking out is the World Heritage Site of the Belfry and Market Halls; you’ll hear the bells ring out over the cobbled square in the center of town every so often, while the impressive tower at the top of the intricate building is beautifully lit up at night.

    Cut through the seemingly relentless parade of tourists, and Bruges is a city of romance, picturesque (though dig deep and you’ll learn that many of the buildings are actually re-creations of the originals; most of Bruges isn’t that old), enticing restaurants and a scene that seems to glitter through every season. Whether it’s the summer daffodils of spring or the slippery frosts of autumn, though, Bruges is a city rammed full of fascinating streets and alluring history.

    For those who love Belgian chocolate, there is a museum which explains everything about this delicacy called Choco-story. You can find this museum at Sint-Jansplein within minutes of the famous shopping street.

    • Ghent
      Known as Gent in the western world, Ghent is a city in the northern section of Belgium in the Flanders region of the country. Initially born as a small settlement on the confluence of the rivers Scheldt and Lys, it became one of the most influential cities in Europe during the Middle Ages, and today it retains its status as a major cultural and economic center, as well as a haven for education, with a major university and a busy port that sees trade coming in year-round. This is easily one of the most happening places in Belgium, and its thriving population is mostly the younger generation whose views are more modern and cosmopolitan in comparison to the rest of the countryside.

      Ghent has a fairly healthy expat population as well, and it is known throughout the country as one of the most tolerant cities in Belgium because of the number of foreigners living here combined with the large number of university students. And while its days of being second only to Paris in terms of popularity are somewhat diminished, Ghent is nevertheless still a very unique find on any adventurer’s map. There is plenty of Gothic architecture dominating the skyline, and some of the buildings lining the canals are literally centuries old. The mixture of canals, cathedrals, castles, and other buildings offer a unique experience that is unlike anywhere else in Europe.

      This amazing little canal city has remained somewhat untarnished over the years, and offers a very intimate look at Flemish life away from the hordes of mass tourism. The best time of year to come is during the summer months, with plenty of festivals happening, and a vibrant nightlife that will offer you one of the best times you’ll ever have in Europe. The most known festival is the 'Gentse Feesten', a festival that goes on for 10 days with a fair, lots of street artists, music performances,...

      Tourists may explore the city center in several ways - walking, cycling or in a nice boat. Ghent has all it`s treasures close to each other. The most beautiful area - Graslei and Korenlei streets, every single house there has amazing original facade.

      Near the Gravensteen stands the impressive meat hall, built between 1407 and 1419. It`s now a restaurant with a very appropriate ceiling decoration.

      Just a few kilometers outside Ghent there is a recreation park with artificial beach with water facilities like water slides and boats. There is also a playground, skatepark, mini-golf, camping ground,...

    • Kortrijk

      Kortrijk is a city of Belgian situated in West Flander. This city lies beside the River Leie. The history of this city can be traced back to Roman times. The name of this city was Cortoriacum at that time.  Normans demolished this city and Baldwin III constructed it again in the 10th century. The town became an important centre of trade and at its height had a population of about 200,000.

      The river Leie flows from France and meets Kortrijk at Broeltorens. Broeltorens is the name of two towers which were built during the medieval period. These towers are the only reflections of the magnificent construction of the city. Unfortunately, everything else was destructed by the army of Louis XIV of France in 1684. These towers were constructed during the 12th and 13th century. The area situated between K Kortrijk and Deinze, along with the bank of river Leie, is famous for the production of Flax.

      • Bruges: great medieval city
        As a solo traveling travel writer, I’ve visited many cities in Europe and Bruges remains one of my favorites. It isn’t as big as European metropoles as Paris, London or Rome but has a medieval, charming atmosphere in its cobblestoned streets that is pretty rare. Bruges is only about 40 km away from the town I live but I always feel like a tourist when visiting Bruges. The many chocolate selling shops, window shopping tourists in the Steenstraat and tour guides showing the best locations in Bruges to their customers add to the atmosphere. My last visit was early March 2017 when I was going to the Belfry tower at the market square, probably the city highlight. I visited the Historium as well, a museum giving you a view on the golden era of Bruges. It’s one of the musea I can totally recommend. If you’re looking for a cultural experience that is a bit different, try the Frietmuseum. This was my first visit to the Frietmuseum despite having been in Bruges many times before. As a Belgian I think it was cool to see how they built a museum about our most popular ‘dish’.
