Ypres

It is hard to imagine the pain that Ypres had to endure during World War 1, having extreme wealth in the middle ages and then been reduced to rubble just over 100 years ago. You can’t fail to be moved by a visit to Ypres, or Wipers as the troops used to call it. Totally re-built in its original medieval splendour, Ypres is a reminder that people can bounce back and have the resilience to carry on.
Top places to visit are the Menin Gate where the Last Post is sounded every evening by the local Fire Brigade and Passchendaele cemetery.
