Ypres, Belgium

Ypres is surrounded by Ypres Salient battlefields, where many cemeteries, memorials and war museums honour the German-Allied battles that unfolded in this area during World War I. After the war, most of the town’s important buildings were reconstructed meticulously, including the Cloth Hall and St. Martin’s Cathedral with its soaring spire.
