The City Theatre Stadsschouwburg in Brugge is a teather from 1869. It is used for dance performances, concerts, operas, comedies and all kind of open stage performances. It is a fascinating building with giant decorated columns. On the top floor you see a lion wearing a golden crown. According to us this represents the Lion of Flanders, the fury on the battlefield of the Golden Spurs. A victory of Flanders against the French, which took place on 11 July 1302. This is why July 11, is still the yearly Anniversary of Flanders. Next to the shield you see a bear, the symbol of Bruges.
