Europe is known for a handful of cities that have been deemed “straight out of a storybook”. Bruges is one of those fairytale European cities. I’m talking enchantingly beautiful everywhere you turn. From picturesque B&B’s and restaurants to quaint little chocolate shops and boat rides. This town will surely attempt to capture your heart. Sure, all the shops are pretty touristy, but that’s part of the medieval town’s charm. I would definitely recommend this city to anyone who’s looking to get away from the urban city feel. These are some photos I took during my stay in Bruges.
If you plan on visiting Bruges, I’d recommend staying in the city center– it’s quite affordable. This was the unreal view from our Airbnb.
A visit to Bruges isn’t complete without a boat trip on its canals. You’ll get to see another perspective of the town– and I’d even say the best views I witnessed were from the boat!
Kind people, good food, and magical vibes all around the town.
You’re in Belgium. You definitely get some moules-frites (mussels and fries) and CHOCOLATE. For the fries, dip with ketchup and mayonnaise. Belgian mayonnaise is like none other. It’s a must.
At a tucked-away gothic museum/bar that’s only open Sunday nights, we sang like pirates with the owner and his “gypsy band”. This summed up to be one of the best experiences of my life.
