The busiest railway station of Flanders with over 45000 users a day has more to offer.  The magnificent building was built in the early 20th century to attend in style the visitors of the Ghent World Exhibition of 1913.   Architect Louis Cloquet created an eclectic building with Moorish elements giving it an exotic look.  But you will also notice elements of medieval castles and abbey corridors with sculptures of fantasy animals.  1000 m3 of painted walls (sgrafitto style) display the monuments of all major Belgian cities.  So in case you don’t know where to go in Belgium , come over to the Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station and choose your destination while checking the restored murals.
