About Historic Centre, Bruges

“It’s a fairy-tale town, isn’t it?” That was a line from "In Bruges", a crime drama shot entirely in Bruges. And it is an accurate description of the town. It does have a certain fairy-tale like quality about it with its beautiful medieval Gothic architecture and cobbled streets and the abundance of criss-crossed canals which has given it the nick name the Venice of the North. If Bruges is the classic fairy tale town then the historic centre of Bruges is where the prince and princess defeat their magical foes and are paraded around. The Gothic buildings in the centre date back a few centuries and it’s perfect for a stroll or a carriage ride to soak in the history.
