a series of travel images from Belgium. Bruges (Brugge), a picturesque city in Flanders, was a wealthy trading centre since the Middle Ages. Nowadays the town centre offers one of the best preserved historic cities in Europe. Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic facades and buildings are to be found around the Grand Place (Grote Markt). A boat trip along the Reien (canals) is not to be missed. One of the landmarks is the Belfry and the Halle (Cloth Hall) and the Ten Wyngaerde Beguinage is on the Unesco World Heritage list.
