Photographs Brugge Stadhuis / City Hall

Brugge (or Bruges to use the more familiar French name) is a city that feels like frozen in time, in a way similar to Venice. Like Venice, Brugge has many bridges and canals, as well as a mediaeval economic power, and that is reflected in the architecture that still remain. The City Hall is in the centre of the historic town, with an impressive fa├žade, and it also houses a neo-Gothic hall inside created after the fire gutted the interior in 1887.
