13 Dec Travel to Belgium: from Brussels to Bruges
Would you like to feel in medieval times?
Belgium is our destination. Surely you are travellers who are attracted to history. In this post, I propose a tour of the 4 cities of Belgium to get the most out of a country that doesn´t know the passage of time. The medieval aspect they have will captivate you. We will go from Brussels to Bruges.
The capital of Belgium also houses the headquarters of the European Parliament and the European Commission. A city with a lot of history. Travellers, prepare for sightseeing, to fall in love with beautiful Brussels. From the Manneken Pis, which is a very representative symbol of this city. Can you imagine what it can be? A naked child urinating, yes yes and different armies have tried to steal it several times. Until Atomium, the Brussels icon, built for the Brussels Expo of 1958. From there you will have beautiful views of the city skyline. But don’t leave the Grand Place behind, this square is a world heritage site.
Soak up emblematic places and be part of the story!
Next destination, Ghent. I hope you are prepared for a good culture bath. Historic buildings predominate in this city, they are everywhere! But you can’t leave without seeing Gravensteen, the castle of the Counts. In the heart of the city. This fortress has been everything from the Headquarters of the Mint to a cotton mill. The Cathedral of Ghent, for those who a smile remember their art history books … You will simply fall in love! It combines the Gothic, baroque and romantic style.
Travel to Belgium from Brussels to Bruges: Sports and tourism, what else can you ask for?
How do you carry that bike ride by the city? Do you like it? If so, you have to go through Antwerp. And if you like Rubens, don’t think about it. Let this city enchant you with its Renaissance buildings in the Plaza Mayor, its Gothic Cathedral, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. And of course, the Rubens House Museum.
The most magical channels
To go totally haunted from Belgium you must go through Bruges, the city of canals. A beautiful city. In addition to the boat rides, which will captivate you, you cannot forget Burg, the Rosario Pier or its unpronounceable original name, Rozenhoedkaai, the most photographed of the city. The mills of Kruisvet and the Plaza Mayor, Mark.
After so much tourism and culture, you always have to recover, so before leaving this wonderful country you have to… EAT CHOCOLATE! And take you a little home.
