Photographer's Note

I been yesterday again in Bruges for a good winter strolls, a lot wind and a temperature of + 2ー Celsius I have a small report making of the wonderful city.
Yes on every corner you can make a wonderful picture, Bruges is a big museum.
I like this city with are a lot tourists for everywhere in the world.
Small history:
The history of Bruges begins around 2000 years ago. At that time there was a Gallic-Roman settlement on the site of the city. The inhabitants did not live by agriculture alone, they traded with England and the rest of Gaul. Around 270 the Germanic people attacked the Flemish coastal plain for the first time. The Romans probably still had a military fortification here at the end of the third century and during the fourth century. So it is very possible that Bruges was inhabited in the transition period to the early middle Ages. When Saint Eligius came to spread Christianity in our area around 650, Bruges was perhaps the most important fortification in the Flemish coastal area.

I have little bit cropped to right hand for a better composition, ≤ than 1%

I hope you very enjoy it.
