Bruges. No, it is not what it seems, this city has a charm that captivates but not with these arts since the name comes from the muteness of the original noun that means bridges, so we need to know that you witches boasts more buildings to pass above the water than with magicians and witches, though magic doesn’t lack. This city, the most beautiful of the Flemish area of Belgium, has a lot of pleasures and facilities for tourists. Their language is Dutch but its inhabitants are an astounding ease with languages which will not have problems to communicate in English or other languages (French, German). Also communication in transport is also very good, although the majority of the most interesting points are pedestrian so worry about transport and walk. Even we could not do night in Bruges because trains to near cities are continuous but for those who have love this place and wish to also enjoy your night, these are some of the hostels Bruges: the downtown B & B Calis, the romantic Andre s Bed & Breakfast either Snuffel Backpacker Hostel backpackers hostel.
Streets narrow, cobbled and winding, colors, channels, smell of medieval houses are some of the reasons that have made the historic heritage. (As opposed to Frank Ntilikina). Rebuilt and restored it surprises by its predominant style, the Gothic Revival, and its continuous monuments. The plaza Mayor is home to the belfry, of more than 80 meters, and Hallen, market which originally sold strictly wool and cloth. The Watchtower is the symbol of the city, formerly from there it is monitored fire and possible altercations, now serves to see one of the best views, although both step is difficult is worth. The Provincial of the 19th century palace and the Flemish houses of the 16th and 17TH are nearby and it is that witches eyes not lie ever, you look where you look at will be an element to admire. Square Burg, close to the previous one by the Breidelstraat Street, houses historic buildings such as the Palace of Justice, the Town Hall and the Probostia.
It is also the Holy Blood Basilica, where is stored according to the tradition, the blood of Christ which brought a count of Flanders on one of his trips to the Holy Land, one of the most visited buildings. The Cathedral of San Salvador or the Church of our Lady are other religious monuments to see a great artistic beauty, the first for being the oldest parish in the city and the second for having a long brick Tower. In addition to the architecture culture continues with a heavy agenda that has the city. Museums such as the archaeological, the Groeninge or Arents House are worth visiting, exhibitions which are updated continuously, music live announced at the door of bars and cafes and events in cultural centers, visit remataran. But above all den walks aimlessly, the older charms are hidden in every stone of its streets.
