We recorded this 4k ultra hd video during our trip to Bruges, Belgium on August 2020. Bruges (Brugge in Dutch) is located in the northwest corner of Belgium and is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders. It is a mere 44 km from Ghent to the southeast and 145 km from Brussels.
The medieval center of Bruges is remarkably well preserved and is a UNESCO world heritage site. Bruges had its golden age around 1300 when it became one of the most prosperous cities of Europe. Our guided walking tour is about 1.55 miles (2.5 km) long, starts at Burg Square and covers most attractions and historic sites of Bruges.
