Grote Markt in Brugge

Grote Markt

Brugge

Brugge is such a beautiful place that it doesnít matter that every tourist visiting Belgium goes there. Many of the buildings are hundreds of years old and are in pristine condition. Canals run through and around the historic district and an inexpensive boat ride is a perfect way to get a quick guided tour. The central area contains all kinds of shops lining narrow streets friendly to pedestrian traffic. The Markt, pictured above, sits in the center of the tourist area and the historic town radiates from it on all sides. It's a nice place to relax at an outdoor table, reward oneself with a drink after a full day of walking, and watch the people wander about.
