A visit to Brugge

Bruges - morning canal

Just back from a quick weekend visit to the ancient Belgian town of Bruges, also known as Brugge. I got pretty lucky with the weather – as you can see, a nice sunny day on Saturday. Above is a shot of a canal near where I was staying. Next is a shot taken in the main square, known as the Markt.

Bruges - Markt

Here a couple more picturesque scenes – the town abounds in them! Bruges was apparently at its peak back in the 1300 and 1400s, then faded in importance for quite a long time. These days it’s a very well preserved tourist attraction.

Later I’ll post a few more shots from a bit further off the beaten track.
