Pictures to inspire you to visit Ghent

Canal and medieval houses in Ghent

Ghent is a beautiful city in the Flemish region of Belgium, it has a rich history, and it was very important during the middle ages – one of the biggest back then. Its medieval architecture is well preserved, and a little walk through the historic center proves that. The center area is car-free (the largest in the country), which makes your visit even more pleasant. Ghent is the perfect city for a weekend getaway, or for a round trip from Brussels (from 30 minutes to 1h by train).

So, if your idea is to visit a typical Belgian city, but want a “less-tourists-please” experience, Ghent is a good option. The city has all the typical Belgian elements to please every traveler.
