Ghent – The best of Belgium in one city

Halfway between Bruges and Brussels is Ghent (Gent). Like Bruges, much of Ghent’s medieval architecture remains intact. Like Brussels, it has a lively nightlife and arts scene. Ghent is like having the best of these two great cities in one, which is why I don’t understand why Ghent isn’t as well known as it should be. To compare, there is one hostel in Ghent, and at least six in Bruges.

      Thanks for the comment. I love Ghent! Seriously, one of underrated cities of Western Europe. Unfortunately it was terrible weather when I went and I recall not being able to get a decent photo of the castle. Just just means I have a good excuse to go back :)
