Ghent

Ghent and it's famous three towers: St-Nicholas, Belfry, St-Bavo

During the bus tour we see the Millionaires' quarter, St-Peter station and the nearby avenues with Art Nouveau and Art Déco facades, St-Peter square with the St-Peter church and "Vooruit" the building of the socialist trade union.

Ghent is historical and contemporary at the same time and is crossed by two rivers, Scheldt and Leie, and by a number of canals. 30 minutes boat trips are offered. In preparation of a universal exhibition which was organised in 1913, Ghent renovated many squares and buildings, e.g. the 1000 year old Count's Castle.

During the walk in the old town center, we discover the beauty and the stories of the picturesque streets and canals. We start at the Woodrow Wilson square and discover historical Ghent: the fortress "Gerard de Duivelsteen", St-Bavo's cathedral with "the Mystic Lamb" by Jan Van Eyck. We see the Belfry, the Town Hall, the Friday Market, the "Patershol" and the old Fish Market. The Old Harbour offers the finest views on St-Michael church and on Ghent's famous three towers: the tower of St-Nicholas' church, the Belfry and the tower of St-Bavo's catherdral.
