Introductions to Ghent

Located at the point where River Lys Meets River Scheldt, Ghent is a Belgian City whose history, stretches back to the middle ages. Actually, archeological evidence suggests that there was civilization in the area that is today occupied by the city of Ghent as far back as in the iron age, and perhaps even in the stone age.

Ghent is, however, not just a historical city: it is a living city, hosting almost a quarter of a million people, with a thriving port and a major university, among other things.

Ghent seems to have managed to modernize while also at the same time preserving its rich history.
