In the northwestern part of Belgium, you’ll find the lovely port city of Ghent, which sits at the confluence of the Scheldt and Leie rivers. As the capital and biggest city of the province East Flanders, Ghent is a center of culture, tourism and economy. In fact, it is one of the richest cities in Northern Europe. It has been this way since the Middle Ages.
Some of the highlights of your tour to this city will include Saint Bavo Cathedral, Gravensteen Castle, Saint Jacob’s Church, Saint Michael’s Church, Book Tower, Ghent City Museum, and Museum Voor Schone Kunsten (Museum of Fine Arts).
