BRUGES- A Medieval Town of Belgium





The year was 1979 when I made my first visit to Germany. I was 26  with smart young physique looking person having attractive black & brown eyes (sorry for the self-praise) but it is dam truth as many ladies including my wife had the same opinion. In summer 1980, Me and my friend Mr. Rana Khan (who still lives in Germany) planned to visit Belgium. At that time European Union was not in existence and it was very difficult to get Belgium Visa. However, with the help of a belgique lady we got the visa and visited Brussels and Antwerp. After that I been to Germany many times but never thought to visit Belgium again. Even in August last year I along with my wife landed at Brussels airport but without staying there we went to Luxembourg and then to France.

I had a plan in my mind to visit Belgium in 2020 but due to corona virus, it is not possible to travel abroad and this year I will remain at home. From January 2020 till today I am at home spending much of my time sitting before computer in learning Coral Draw and now I am able to create and design logo.

On 4th July,2020, a few countries of European Union lifted lock down. Taking this opportunity my younger daughter & her husband (Both live in Europe) drove toward Belgium by their Mercedes car.

Their 2-day stay was in BRUGES city of Belgium. Upon return she provided me few pictures and material for writing my next blog. So, this blog is about Bruges to whom some people say city of Castles while many call it Haunted City. It is also called city of canals.             

Situated in northwestern Belgium, Bruges is one of Europe’s most very much protected medieval towns, flaunting an old-world appeal and sentimental climate. When a significant community for Flemish workmanship and materials, Bruges today is most popular for its delightful waterways.


Bruges might be the biggest city in the West Flanders territory; however, it is still little enough to investigate by strolling. The primary fascination in Bruges is the postcard-flawless Old Town. Encircled by pleasant channels and medieval dividers, the architecturally significant area is abounding in wonderful old engineering including Romanesque and Gothic holy places like the Church of Our Lady that houses a Michelangelo design, and the Basilica of the Holy Blood, which professes to have a vial of blood from Jesus Christ.

The Church of Our Lady with its 122-meter block steeple, overwhelms the horizon of the city. It is actually the ‘high spot’ of the stonemason’s craft in medieval Bruges. It took two centuries (thirteenth fifteenth) to fabricate the congregation. Among the numerous workmanship treasures is a delightful Carrara marble Madonna and Child design by Michelangelo.


The city’s most acclaimed milestone is the Markt Square tower. Guests can climb this thirteenth century ringer tower to appreciate stupendous perspectives on the city. Different destinations not to miss incorporate the fantastic Gruuthuse Mansion, and the great Saint John’s Hospital, which was worked in 1188. Must-do exercises in Bruges incorporate visiting the historical centers, which display the city’s way of life, customs and fine arts by popular Flemish specialists.

Belgium is one shocking nation to investigate! Let’s face it, for a generally little nation, it sneaks up suddenly with all the exquisite towns and urban areas in Belgium to visit. From the perpetual waffle houses in Brussels to the delightful waterways of Bruges, there are urban areas in Belgium that will suit each guest’s preferences, I’m certain. Bruges is a dazzling capital city of West Flanders, concealed in northwest Belgium. Once here, make a point to visit in the focal piazza region called the Markt. It’s the thumping heart of Bruges with heaps of little shops and eateries to visit – that being stated, they’re especially on the traveler trail and will in general be estimated as needs be. 




Moules-frites, in French, Mosselen-Friet, in Flemish, or mussels with fries, is an exemplary Belgian dish you can discover at pretty much any bistro or brasserie in Brussels. It’s one of the nourishments to eat in Belgium. The most widely recognized way mussels are served in Belgium is steamed in white wine, in large dark mussel pots. Notwithstanding wine, moules marinières additionally contain shallots, parsley, and spread. Other cooking strategies incorporate cream, lager, or even mustard sauce.

FrieFries (frites in French or frieten in Flemish) are to some degree the national dish of Belgium. You’ll never hear a Belgian call them “french fries”, not in any event, when talking in English. There’s a great deal of discussion around who developed seared potatoes, yet I guarantee you – Belgians culminated them. When you eat fries in Belgium, they’ll never taste as great anyplace else’s



Meatballs are a Belgian top choice, on the two sides of the language partition, and are generally a blend of hamburger and pork. In Flanders, balletjes or “balls” are frequently served covered in pureed tomatoes, or, now and again, Frikadellen-style; seared in spread with Belgian cherry sauce.



1.More than 50 castles are in Bruges.

2.Belgium invented fries not American.

3.You can see the Burges High way from the moon.

4.There are more than 80 bridges in Burges.

5.There are countless myths and legends.

And now my request and appeal to European nations……

Please leave double edge diplomacy- Some time back you were making law against wearing NIQAB covering face by Muslim women and now you are making Law to wear face masks Mandatory.


And in the end     I appreciate and Salute Prime Minister of Luxembourg who distributed 50 Euro to each and every person living and working in Luxembourg to go to some restaurants and spend this money …….This is another way to bring nation out from Covid-19 depression and helping restaurants industry as well.
