V baroque, very elaborate pulpit (why at the back?), lifesize models of the Apostles. Despite a misleading sign ouside (when we were there) there was no entrance fee.

The restoration is still going on but you can visit the church.
You have to see for yourselves. It's fabulous!

This church is in the centre of Ghent right in front of the Novotel. Beautiful stained glass windows. I went to Sunday morning Mass there and the choir of lay people, nuns and monks sang beautifully. Very nice paintings of the stations of the cross. Lots of people ignore this church and concentrate on the cathedral but it is well worth a visit.

Saint Nicholas suffers from its location. As cathedrals go, it is less ornate and much more simple than many you would see on a tour of Europe, or even Belgium. What makes matters a bit more difficult, is that it is in the heart of Ghent, which is so beautiful that it makes Saint Nicholas look rather staid by contrast.

Definitely take a few moments to stop in and look around. It is a beautiful place that is diluted by all the beauty that surrounds it.

Nice church with a well used and loved feel. Easy to wander round and have a look so why not. The church is in the heart of the city and part of the three towers run.
