Our reports

Just how medieval is Bruges?

When you take a tour of Bruges, your guide is certain to draw your attention to the Bonifaciusbrug (The Bridge of St Boniface). You will be told that this quaint medieval structure is the city's oldest bridge. But scan the nearby shops selling antique postcards and engravings of the city and you will not find any that depict the bridge. Why? Because it isn't medieval at all. The city's oldest bridge was erected here in 1910 !
