Photos of Gent

Almost all travel guides agree that Brugge (or Bruges) is the most beautiful city in Belgium. I think that’s because all the nice old buildings are conveniently located in one small area – the old city center.

However, my first impression of Gent was much better. Yes, the old churches and castles are located in different parts of the center, separated by blocks of 19-20 century houses. But there are less tourists and more beautiful places, than in Brugge. Also, the city is trying to be something more that just an attraction with a bunch of hotels. You can find a lot of funny art and strange decorations, adding a bit of smile to the serious flemish architecture.

There are some pics from my 2007 vacation in Gent:
