Bruges is so-called "Venice of the North", "a town in the snuffbox", "gingerbread town". It is considered as one of the most beautiful places on earth. Bruges is unique by its number of churches and museums which is considered to be more numerous than the residents' one.
Literally around every corner there's a medieval tower, a majestic cathedral, the old bell tower and stone statue of a saint. It is the provincial capital of West Flanders, as well as the chocolate capital of Belgium.
