On Thursday we visited the very old city of Gent. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and was once a very autonomous city. But after a war it lost all its independence and since then it has become less influential. But because of its stunning architecture and its very famous castle it is still worth seeing. Our first activity on this day was the journey to Gent by train.
We then travelled to the castle by tram. It’s very stunning architecture and the audio guide was very informative. After an hour, we met our city guide, who walked with us through the city. We visited the Graslei, one of the most famous places in the city. It is directly near the river Leie. Gent is one of the few cities with a Belfrey, a clock tower in the centre of the city. After we had said goodbye to our guide, we had some free time. We spent our last evening in Brussels having dinner together. It was a great week which ended great.
