General Impressions of Kortrijk

With this "General Impressions" article we complete the Kortrijk series. It was an interesting city to visit but it was very cold. The two towers over the Leie river at the "Guido Gezellepad" are cold the "Broel Torens". They are connected by a bridge. The towers were erected in 1385 and 1415 to control the vessels on the Leie. The "Groeningepoort" is a monument to celebrate the victory of the "Guldensporenslag". This was built in 1908, 605 years after the battle. One of the most beautiful churches of the city is the "Sint Maartens church", unfortunately it was closed.

Met dit "algemene indrukken" artikel vervolledigen wij onze reeks over Kortrijk. Een interessante stad om te bezoeken, maar het was zeer koud. De twee torens met brug over de Leie rivier aan het Guido Gezellepad worden de "Broel Torens" genoemd. Ze werden opgetrokken in 1385 en 1415 om boten te controleren die de stad in vaarden. De "Groeningepoort" is een monument ter ere van de "Guldensporenslag" en ze werd gebouwd 605 jaar na de veldslag in 1908. Een van de mooiste kerken in de stad is de Sint Maartenskerk, helaas was deze die dag gesloten..
