The city of Bruges is interwoven with canals built on the river Reie for which it is often called “Venice of the North“. Boat trips on the city canals are among the city's popular tourist attractions. In 2000 the historic centre of Bruges was listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This is mainly due to the development in the 13th and the 17th centuries when a fast economic growth helped Bruges become one of the trade and financial centres in the region. The famous Flemish cloth was the most important trading comodity.
