Bruges, the capital of West Flanders, is now Belgium's most popular tourist destination, so book early.

Medieval artisans were determined to reveal to the church and to mankind the creative spirit, how to elevate, nourish and indulge it. I wouldn’t have gone for the “Holy Blood,” but humanism shines supreme in the real tapestry of Bruges.

I first fell in love with Bruges when I was nine years old. Walking through the centre of the city, I was held spellbound by the sight of the 90-metre high Belfort-Hallen towering above the Markt. In the course of a single afternoon the city stole my heart.

Shhhhhh, don’t tell too many friends that I’ve discovered this quaint European medieval city that you only see in movies. Only this isn't a set built on Paramount’s back lot – this is for real. Enter the Old Town Gate and go back in time. Bruges – we adore you!

A step back into many times past,tourist-crowded but tourist-friendly Bruges was a low-key interlude from the big cities of Paris and London. Food and drink were superior and budget-priced - love those frites! The locals were welcomers and rescuers and I love their city! Bruges has the best of the "new" and "old" worlds;its beauty is that of both Nature and Man preserved for our delight.

Our family (parents and three girls, 14, 12 and 8) traveled in Europe for three weeks. Bruges is an almost perfectly preserved mideival town located an hour west of Brussels. While popular with tourists, it has the feel of a place where people actually live and work - it feels real.
