Ghent is a city located in Belgium and it is the capital of the East Flanders province. Ghent is a city of history. During the Middle Ages, it was one of the richest and most powerful cities in Europe. It was once considered the second largest city north of the alps, after Paris. The impact of this rich past can be clearly seen when viewing the imposing architecture of churches and the houses of rich traders. The whole of the city center is restored in this fashion, and still breathes the atmosphere of a thriving late-medieval city state. As the city council made the center free of cars, it is now a very welcoming and open area, which does not fail to impress even the people who live there.

The old city centre, the Old Belfry Tower, the Graslei and Korenlei, Saint-Nicholas Church, the St Bavo's Cathedral, the Castel of the Counts, Beguinages (listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites).
