ブルージュはベルギー北西部にあるフランデレン地域の都市で、Vlaams Gewest or Région flamande ウェスト=フランデレン州の州都になっており2002年に欧州文化首都となるほどヨーロッパを代表する最も美しい観光都市である。ドイツ・ビュルツブルクのように、その橋が印象的だが、もともとBrugesとはオランダ語でBridge橋を意味している言葉Bruggeでもある。また、ブルージュはフランス・リールにもわずか65km近く、フランス語では橋を『Bruges』と呼んでいるので、この街の名前ブリュージュそのものだ。ベルギーはオランダ語が母国語で次いでフランス語も多いく両国とは密接な関係にある。街に流れる運河には無数の橋が架けられている。
