“Ghent - History well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

East Flanders- population of 250,000, has for centuries been the focal point of the Flemish nationality. Ghent owes its historical importance to the cloth - The city flourished long time ago during the Middle Ages, and there was even a period, around the turn of the 14th century, when it was the second-largest city north of the Alps; only Paris was then bigger. Today, the 3rd-largest industrial region in Bel­gium and the largest port (beautiful views of the North Sea!!) So much to see and do from visiting revolving industries of Belgium and It is also a youthful university town.

“A place where I will always miss.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

Gent is a place where the old is preserved so that people of our time could truly enjoy its beauty within. A place where I would definitely come to see again and again if I could! It's a magical town where peace and tranquility exist within its people and surrounding.

“Back to the Future”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

Ghent has managed to retain it's medieval history through architectural guidelines. New businesses can change the inside but the facade must remain intact. Ghent has a variety of museums to visit from the Industrial Museum to the new Aljin Museum. This historic city provides travellers with a variety of restaurants. If you are in Ghent on a Friday don't miss the market in the main square. A variety of vendors ranging from clothes, fresh sea food, fruits and vegetables.

For accomodations the NH St. Peters and NH Belfort are excellent value properties.
