Day Trip to Ghent Belgium

There is something rather special about medieval Ghent, the capital of the province of East Flanders. Ghent is a city of history. During the Middle Ages, Ghent Belgium was one of the richest and most powerful cities in Europe and even Ghent rivaled Paris as one of Europe's leading cities. The fortress and the view of the city that unfolds before the eyes when ascending its watchtowers give that impression.
