Boasting remnants from the Middle Ages, the ancient city of Ieper in West Flanders offers attractions that are as historically significant as Ghent and Bruges, but with fewer crowds. Wildlife is visible in the city's old moat, and its impressive ramparts date back to the 14th century. While Ieper suffered extensive damage in World War I, it has since been restored (or rebuilt where restoration was not possible). Many visitors come to pay homage to the 300,000 soldiers who died here by visiting cemeteries, memorials, and museums dedicated to the war, in addition to the city’s famous medieval sites.
