Gent - Gand

Gent is the Capital of the East-Flanders Province.

Gent is build near the junction of the Schelde River and the Leie River. So that’s why there are so many canals in the inner city.

Gent is also the Birth City of Charles V better known as Emperor Charles (1500 - 1558). So that’s why in last year there were special activities all over in the region to celebrate 500-year anniversary of the Emperor ‘s birthday.
Gent has a very rich history and great old monuments.

It's about 60 km from my hometown to Gent.

Gent is a beautiful historical city.

Mostly when I go to Gent it is to visit a theatre. There are lots of different theatre halls (big and small).

Theatre halls I visited (till now) : Capitool, De Vooruit, NTG, De Minard, Tinnepot, De Rode pomp, Nieuwpoorttheater (Campo), Kopergietery
