"Naturally Flanders" Gent by Sjalen

Gent Travel Guide: 1,472 reviews and 3,832 photos

Gent is one of my favourite cities in Belgium. Firstly, there are loads of historical things to look at which gives it an atmosphere and some very nice buildings. Secondly, it is a great student town with wonderful pubs where you meet people and enjoy Belgian beers. Being in between businesslike Brussels and touristy Brugge (Bruges) it also feels more "genuine" than those two. The picture is of the Workers House in Vridagmarkt, one of the greatest buildings in the city I think. The scanning doesn't show all the Workers' messages on it...
