Bruges is located in north-western Belgium and is one of Europe’s most well-preserved medieval towns, bursting with old world charm Romanesque and Gothic architecture and a romantic atmosphere.
It is a photographers dream with many great opportunities to capture its beauty including the likes of cathedrals, statues and of course its romantic canals.
Explore the many things to do in Bruges on foot or by bicycle and try to stay a night or two to enjoy the city without the hoards of day trippers who clear our by dusk.
And speaking of dusk, it was my favourite time to explore, not just because of the thinning crowds, but also because of the changing light on the city’s Gothic buildings and canals.
Here is a selection of my favourite photos taken while I was in Bruges.
