Bruges opened its stock exchange in 1309, nearly 200 years before Amsterdam. From Wikipedia's entry for Bruges: This [port] development opened not only the trade in spices from the Levant, but also advanced commercial and financial techniques and a flood of capital that soon took over the banking of Bruges. The Bourse opened in 1309 (most likely the first stock exchange in the world) and developed into the most sophisticated money market of the Low Countries in the 14th century.
