If you wonder how a square would look like in af fairytale, just visit Markt in Bruges. It’s so pretty and perfect that even Disney couldn’t have drawn it better. Remember iPhone or camera!

Belgium boasts a lot of fantastic squares - Brussels and Antwerp and Gent to say the least, but Brugge rivals them nicely. Highly recommended
