Bruges, the old capital of Flanders is located on the little river Reie 12 km south of the port of Zeebrugge to which it is linked by the Boudewijn-Kanaal. Zeebrugge (Dutch: Zeebrugge, French: Zeebruges) is a village on the coast of Belgium and a subdivision of Bruges, for which it is the modern port. Zeebrugge serves as both the international Port of Bruges-Zeebrugge and a seafront resort with hotels, cafés and a beach. Other canals connect Bruges with Ostende, Nieuwpoort, Veurne, Ghent and Sluis. Find property for sale in Bruges (Brugge).
Despite the addition of new building and the loss of its old town walls (all but four towers having been demolished since the mid 19th C. to make way for traffic), Bruges with its perfectly preserved medieval town center remains a tourist dream, a magnet drawing more than two million visitors a year. But the town does have thriving industries as well - steel works, calico mills, furniture factories, prefabricated cement works and yeast, paint, television set and outboard engine manufacturers. Bobbin lace, for which Bruges has long been famous, continues to be important. Complementing all this industry is a strong service sector that makes a significant contribution to the local economy. The chief commodities passing through the port of Zeebrugge - the second largest fishing port in Belgium - are crude oil, coal, iron ore, packaged goods and meat.
