"Expats in Bruges often find the language barrier to be the most challenging aspect of the local culture. Although many people in Bruges speak English, the majority of the population speaks Dutch, which can make it difficult for expats to communicate with locals. Additionally, the local culture is quite traditional and conservative, which can be difficult for expats to adjust to. Furthermore, the cost of living in Bruges is quite high, which can be a challenge for expats who are not used to the high prices," commented one expat who made the move to Bruges, Belgium.
