Ypres is an ancient town, and is known to have been raided by the Romans in the first century BC.
The city of Ypres, the heart of the Salient, was involved early in the First World War. During World War I, Ypres was the centre of intense and sustained battles between the German and the British Empire forces. The town was all but annihilate by the artillery fire. Excursion in Brussels. Ypres was reduced to ruins. After the War, the town was rebuilt, with many of the original pre-war buildings recreated, and today, standing in the town you would hardly believe that most buildings are at most 80 or so years old.
