I hope you enjoyed my last post about Iceland because today, I’m going to talk about my lovely Belgium and more specifically about Ghent :-)
There is so much to see and to experience in Ghent for architecture lovers ! Walking in the city is like walking through a historical painting and stepping back in time. We were there only for a day, and we focused mainly on the monuments and the architecture and less on the museums.
The green spots were really hidden, and we didn’t come across any during our wanderings around the town. This would require further exploration; they must be tucked away in quieter corner of the city :-)
We spent a lot of time around the Graslei, considered by many as the most beautiful part of the city. The Graslei is an old medieval port with its unique row of historical buildings, which are reflected in the water of the river. There are a lot of café and restaurant around, this is the busiest part of the town ! We had beer nearby and enjoy the warm autumnal sun outside. It was nice !
We stayed until it was completely dark, and Ghent by night is a must do ! When the sun sets, the city is completely different.
