"Ieper - a must see town" Ieper by clareabee

Ieper is a beautiful town, but has so many sad associations, with it being most famous for battles during the first world war. Many people from all different nations come to the town to pay their respects to those who gave their lives in the ultimate sacrifice, and to see the beautiful town.
Ieper is a beautiful town it is own right. Many of the buildings were destroyed during the war and had to be rebuilt - a feat in itself. The Menin gate is indeed an architectural marvel but also holds a more serious message - the name of all the soldiers lost at war with no known grave, and everybody at least once in their lifetime should visit - lest we forget.
