Comparing the tiny medieval city of Brugge with Paris and Prague is a bit like comparing Poole with London. Although a better comparison in terms of the essence of the place might be York or Canterbury. The city fathers know that they have to ensure the city doesn't become too much of a static museum in itself and they work hard to ensure there are events, exhibitions & other changes to ensure that people return time and time again.
