BELGIUM ~Belfry Bruges - UNESCO ~

I start the Fifa World Cup 2014 today with a special issued stamp and mania is taking over...Good Luck to our Red Devils!!! Big Thanks to friend Johan for this unique item ^__^ .

The World Cup 2014 in Brazil will be one of Belgium’s first main international tournaments in years after failing to qualify for the 2006 and 2010 World Cups ...
Our country issued a new stamp (the sheetlet has the shape of a football)...

The medieval belfry tower (13th-15th century) is 88 metres in height and houses the former city treasury, in which Bruges' valuables (money and royal charters) were once kept.

A climb of 366 steps takes the visitor past the impressive clock mechanism and culminates in a breathtaking panoramic view of the city and its surroundings.

The famous 47-bell carillon is also located here.
