Bruges. The story of a city

Bruges, a city with a fascinating history. Bruges, a city of people and stories.


With this book, historian Paul Van Damme wrote an ode to the city, its inhabitants and its heritage. It became a work that reads like a page-turner, with an eye for the human face of history: cityscapes become wonderful scenes, houses and squares the setting for true stories. The author thus proves that historical accuracy and compelling historiography can go hand in hand.

This work is an ideal introduction for those who visit Bruges for the first time, but also for those who like to return or have lived here for a lifetime: accessible, intriguing and surprisingly enriching.
