Bruges is categorically adorable and the Bruges Madonna is way pretty.
But when you’re tired of all that freaking adorableness that is everywhere and you’ve also had ENOUGH of that damn Michelangelo already, go to the Sint-Janshospitaal, because you know what cuts right through the twee? Plague ambulances:
The Sint-Janhospitaal is a medieval hospital and current medical museum that is right across the way form the Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Kerke where that ol’Michelangelo is located. And when you go to Bruges, I really, really, really suggest you get the Bruges City Card, because not only does it make it way economical to go to some of those “must-see” sights, you also get to go see a bunch of medical oddities. Win-win.
