Bruges (Dutch: Brugge) is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located in the northwest of the country.
The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. It is egg-shaped and about 430 hectares in size. The area of the whole city amounts to more than 13,840 hectares, including 193.7 hectares off the coast, at Zeebrugge ("Seabruges" in literal translation). The city's total population is more than 117,000, of which around 20,000 live in the historic centre.
Bruges has, because of its port, a significant economic importance and is also home to the College of Europe.

My husband and I have been to Bruges, but just recently our daughter took some horse statue pictures while she was there. These pictures are copyright Lindsey DeJong.
