The magical city of antiquity or what to see in Brugge in one day?
On the last day of his trip to Benelux we headed to the mysterious capital of West Flanders. So, today I will tell you what to see in Bruges in one day . how to reach it and what the experience has given me this city.
Bruges is a city that it was impossible not to visit.
How to reach Bruges?
To get to Bruges is the most convenient from the Belgian capital’s railway stations of Bruxelles Nord, Bruxelles Central or Bruxelles Midi. We had a super pass. so we didn’t have to buy a ticket. The cost of the trip from Brussels to Bruges is € 14 for an adult. The ticket could be bought in the station ticket office or online ( for example, raileurope, thetrainline-europe ). Trains depart very frequently, every 20-30 minutes.
Bruges is 100 km from Brussels, so the trip takes about an hour. European trains will give you the comfort and purity. In the middle of the road is Ghent . and if you have time, you can have time to see and this city. For us, this was not possible, so we came straight to the Central station of Bruges.
In Bruges we were not even one day and only 7 hours, but that time was enough to explore the city. However, in order to enjoy the unhurried and atmospheric walks, to which Bruges is just disposed, it is better to come here at least for two days.
So, you have arrived at the Central station, from which you can begin to know the capital of West Flanders. The guides don’t lie, Bruges almost completely managed to preserve its medieval beauty . In the city it is difficult to find modern skyscrapers and buildings, new houses here are created only in the appropriate architectural style. My advice would be to arrive in Bruges as early as possible. Walking through the deserted streets at 8.00 am, we moved in the middle Ages.
