Often giving the feel of a city suspended in time, Bruges is a twisting labyrinth of narrow streets, drifting canals and Golden Age architecture. The whole city has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is one of Europe’s most-visited medieval cities.

Whether wandering the quiet cobbled streets on a summer’s eve, ice skating at the Christmas market or just settling down with a drink at a cosy inn, it’s not hard to lose yourself in Bruges’ magical atmosphere.

City bed and breakfast The Swan in BrugesThe Swan Guesthouse is set in a fully renovated townhouse in Bruges’ historic centre, just moments from the Beguinage monastery and the peaceful Minnewater (also known as the Lake of Love).

With just two rooms, the guesthouse retains an atmosphere of privacy and intimacy, despite its proximity to the centre of Bruges. Both rooms boast a chic, modern design style, with private bathrooms, king-size beds and fluffy robes provided. A tempting breakfast can be enjoyed on the sunny terrace.

Budapest is one of many European cities which straddle the impressive Danube River.
