The historic city centre was added to the Unesco's World Heritage List. The current city boundaries still coincide exactly with those of the medieval city centre, and the spaces and structures that were so typical of Bruges in the past have been preserved. This, however, does not mean that there is no room for modern architecture and modern work and living spaces. Take your time to walk through busy squares, refreshing parks and quiet, intimate cobbled streets, and do not forget to visit the modest almshouses as well as the imposing patrician's homes!

Upon visiting Bruges, you will immediately notice that this city has always carefully cherished its architectural and artistic treasures from the past. What makes Bruges so typical though, is the way it deals with this past today. The people of Bruges would like to invite you to join them and to enjoy it as much as they do. Not only now, but also in the future, because this is an amazing journey you will want to make over and over again.
