/ Brugge Hotel & Travel Guide - Belgium
||Bruges, called Brugge
by its native Dutch language name which assumedly used to signify landing
stage, is the capital of the province of West Flanders in present-day Flanders,
the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is one of Europe's most important landmarks
as the city has hardly changed since the Middle Ages. The municipality
comprises the historic city of Bruges proper, considered one of the most
beautiful in Europe, and the towns of Assebroek, Dudzele, Koolkerke, Lissewege,
Sint-Andries, Sint-Jozef, Sint-Kruis, Sint-Michiels, Sint-Pieters, Zeebrugge,
and Zwankendamme. Like Ghent, but on a more concentrated scale, it
has most of its medieval architecture intact. There are many beautiful
medieval buildings, including the Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk (Church of Our
Lady), whose brick spire - at 122m - is Europe's highest brick tower/building.
Bruges is also famous for its 13th-century Belfort, housing a municipal
Carillon comprising 47 bells. The city still employs a full-time bell ringer,
Aimé Lombaért, who puts on regular free concerts.
