Bruges is not only the chocolate capital of Belgium, but without exaggeration, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Medieval Gothic ensembles and a network of canals, perhaps slightly inferior to the Venetian ones, attract crowds of tourists every year. In recent years, the tourist flow has increased so much that the residents of Bruges complain: they live like in Disneyland.

Many of the buildings of clearly old architecture look like new, but this is not a “remake”, just the authorities care about the appearance of Bruges. And, of course, most of the old buildings are museums and you can visit them.
