Bruges is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium.The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. Along with a few other canal-based northern cities, such as Amsterdam, it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North".
Bruges has a significant economic importance thanks to its port. At one time, it was the "chief commercial city" of the world.
I visited Bruges while staying at my sister's place in Brussels. A charming place indeed!
