And by saying sweet, I mean literally, a sweet city. It tastes, it smells, it feels like the most sweetest thing I’ve ever tried. This is a city entirely made by chocolates. Or chocolates are made in this city…? I always confuse! 🙂
The first thing you’re likely to encounter in Bruges after the nice canals and swans are the chocolate shops. There are no words to describe their taste or smell, I’d just strongly advise you to visit a diabetes doctor for measuring blood sugar after leaving Bruges 😀
Besides being a chocolate heaven, Bruges is also a picturesque medieval town, one of those rare cities where the medieval spirit is still alive. Not in every city you’ll see a carriage and horses slowly moving in old narrow streets with medieval buildings.
It is Bruges’ huge historical value that kept it from being destroyed in WW2, when German commander just refused to bomb the city. Now its historic city center is a World Heritage Site of UNESCO.
Bruges is one of those cities which makes you smile whenever you think about it. It’s amazing how this small city fits so much positive energy in it. Maybe it’s carried out by countless chocolates living in this city, the chocolates that make history, the chocolates that sweeten lives and make people a little bit happier.

Let’s not forget why we’re here! 😉
And here they are… the yummies chocolates in the world
And more, and more…
And those waffles, how they smelled~
Ok, let’s not forget about a diet, we’ll gain weight from these sinful sweets (oh my God, they’re delicious, they’re so damn delicious!). Ok let’s go back to the beautiful Bruges
This is so medieval, the horses, the carriage, the street and buildings
The picturesque canals with swans
Swans are the symbol of Bruges
This is the first time I’m jealous of nuns. They live here! In this heavenly place!
I love looking at the cities from high towers, otherwise how would we know that Bruges has those nice red roofs?
Sometimes I don’t know if I’m extremely bad at adjusting my camera’s shutter speed or I really want the picture to be as it is, but I can’t stop watching this shot of an old man who proudly rides a bike in HIS city, his Bruges, where he probably lived his 80 or more years
Guess what these are? Potatoes, Karl, Potatoes! 😀
There’s a museum in Bruges dedicated to the most Belgian thing ever – the (French) fries! 😀
