Ghent

Due to a good strategic position at the confluence of the Rivers Scheldt and Leie, Ghent has been a wealthy city since the Late Middle Ages through good trading routes. Ghent was occupied by the Germans in both World Wars but escaped severe destruction & furthermore presents the visitor today with some marvelous Medieval architecture.

Ghent is a real jewel in the list of European cities. Known for its well preserved medieval architecture, the city also has a good nightlife too. I enjoyed Ghent on two separate occasions, once during daylight hours & a second time just for the evening ambience. I can strongly recommend an evening tour during the summer months, but don’t forget the tripod.

Did You Know?

Much of the Ghent’s medieval architecture remains remarkably well preserved and restored. Cars are banned in the city center, and the cobblestone streets are filled with people walking, biking or taking the public trams. The city center of Ghent is Belgium’s largest carfree area.
