Ypres
The Essential
Interesting
In the 13C, Ypres was one of the most powerful towns in Flanders, together with Bruges and Ghent. It was almost completely destroyed during the First World War, then rebuilt in the Neo-Gothic style. The Flanders Language Valley lies on the town's outskirts and groups together companies specialised in speech synthesis technology.
