Belgium, Ghent, Early morning, August 18, 2012
Ghent is city in the Flemish region of Belgium, located halfway from Brussels to Bruges. Archaeological evidence shows human presence in the region of the confluence of Scheldt and Lys going back as far as the Stone Age and the Iron Age. There were founded two abbeys around 650, and by 800 it was quite a big city. By the 13th century Ghent was the biggest city in Europe after Paris. Today the city attracts lots of tourists every day.
Here is the view of St. Nicholas' Church and the Belfry.
