Bruges - the capital of West Flanders, the crown of travel to the Kingdom of Belgium! A city with over 1,100 years of history, and what a story! It was once called the pole of wealth of Europe. The roads converged here from all the trading cities of Hanseatic Europe, and in the 13th century Bruges (from “brüggia” - the port) became a port of world significance, where the counts of Flanders spent their days in luxury, and then the dukes of Burgundy, who patronized the development of crafts and arts, reaching unprecedented heights here: metal forging, wallpaper and trellis craft, embroidery, lacework, jewelry, architecture, construction, painting ...
In the Middle Ages, about 200 thousand inhabitants lived here - more than now. But Brugge has lost its political, commercial, military power so long ago that even the sadness from this loss has already turned into elegiac sadness, giving the city a subtle charm, a combination of fragility and masculinity, which was reflected in the works of the great artists who lived and worked here - Jan van Eyck , Hans Memmling, Rogier van der Weyden ... A captivating city sung not only by artists, poets, writers, but also ... guides - the city attracts about 3 million tourists a year, more than any other city in Belgium.
