The elves are giving Santa a bit of a break from the webcam right now.Today the square is one of the most important must-see attractions, hundreds of tourists and locals transit here every day delighted by the fact that after the renovation works of 1995 parking was finally removed and the whole area became mostly traffic-free, a real pedestrian's dream; Market Square is dominated by the impressive medieval (1220) 83 meter high Belfry Tower (or Beffroi), one of the city's most prominent landmarks; its magnificent 47-bell carillon continues to peal out over the city every quarter hour, although thrice destroyed and rebuilt, from its top it still offers breathtaking views over the whole Bruges; declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 2000, this stunning city still keeps its original late medieval features so that is one of the most well-preserved medieval cities in Europe; whether we decide to explore the city simply on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage we'll be equally captured by the magical atmosphere of this so picturesque town while enjoying a charming transportation to the medieval.Its attractions also include the Cloth Hall, the imposing Provincial Palace in neo-gothic style, the statue of the patriotic heroes Jan Breydel and Pieter de Coninck also decorates the square while many shops and restaurants are surrounded by old buildings and houses.Very little information dates from the pre-roman age, anyway it seems that Bruges was founded as a fortress-city in the 9th century by Vikings who settled here (the Dutch name "Brugge" seems to have come originally from "" meaning "harbour or mooring place"); the growing prosperity of the city made it rapidly one of the most important maritime capitals of Europe until the 16th century when Bruges entered a period of stagnation.For a longtime it was at the center of the chronic struggle between England and France, this situation led to many revolts, The Bruges Matins (Brugse Metten), which saw armed insurrectionists led by de Coninck and Breydel, is absolutely worth mentioning.
