Photographer's Note

Amsterdam'dan günübirlik Belçika'nın Bruges kentine gittik.Kent tarihi,düzgün ve oldukça korunaklı mimarisiyle çok güzel bir kent ... Kent içindeki kanallarda vızır vızır işleyen tekneler, sandallar var. Sanırım o kanallardan yıl boyu elde ettikleri kazanç Türkiye'nin İstanbul ve Çanakkale Boğazlarından elde ettiği kazançtan kat be kat fazladır.


Bruges (/ˈbruːʒ/ in English; Dutch: Brugge [ˈbrʏɣə]; French: Bruges [bʁyːʒ]; German: Brügge [ˈbrʏɡə]) 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 area of the whole city amounts to more than 13,840 hectares, including 1,075 hectares off the coast, at Zeebrugge (from Brugge aan zee[2] meaning "Bruges on Sea"[3]). The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. It is oval-shaped and about 430 hectares in size. The city's total population is 117,073 (1 January 2008),[4] of whom around 20,000 live in the city centre. The metropolitan area, including the outer commuter zone, covers an area of 616 km2 (238 sq mi) and has a total of 255,844 inhabitants as of 1 January 2008.[5]

Along with a few other canal-based northern cities, such as Amsterdam and Stockholm, it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North". Bruges has a significant economic importance thanks to its port. At one time, it was considered the "chief commercial city" of the world.[6] "Rise, fall and resurrection make up the life story of Bruges, a city that glittered in Northern Europe with as much panache as Venice did in the Mediterranean World."[7]
