With the city center closed off to cars, all the stunning beauty and culture of this unforgettable city can be easily explored on foot, byboat ride along quiet canals, or by horse-drawn carriage among cobblestone streets. Although Bruges is a small city it will take more than one day to explore all the architectural and artistic treasures, folklore, chocolate shops and lace boutiques.
The historic center of the city is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites .
