Trip Moments

Ghent needs a city that slowly develops I first knew the name of Ghent, which was from a movie "Allied Trophy." At the beginning of the movie, in the dark old church, several priests carefully hid huge wooden paintings. This is the famous "Ghent altar painting". From then on, I will think about it and think about it. I came here to learn that Ghent's history dates back to the 7th century. In the Middle Ages, it became a very prosperous city in Europe. Now it is a university town and a famous tourist city. I also heard that the city of Ghent still retains many medieval buildings, especially castles and churches, which are too desirable. It was already after sunset at Ghent, just next to the hotel was a newly opened fire department, where the clergyman was here to perform the opening ceremony for the fire department. A very rare scene I didnt expect to come to Gent. My room is on the top floor of the hotel. It is a loft. Through the window, you can look down at the night scene of Ghent. The first thing that I and my partner came to the room is to set up a tripod and shoot Ghent. The ladies were also attracted to our room, and they ran to our room and sagged. Still old rules, photos are not leaked. Looking through the window to Ghent, the silent night and the ancient city, I fell in love with it at that moment. I told my roommate that I would come to Belgium next time, and I must stay in Ghent for a few nights. There is a modern tram next to the old castle, as if it were two sets of pictures. It is now understandable that Ghents glory once was once in Europe.
From the Belgian capital, Brussels, less than half an hour by train to Ghent, a small town full of medieval flavors. Gent (Holland: gent, French: Gand) Belgian municipality, capital of the province of East Flanders. This small town at the confluence of the Scheldt and Les Rivers is the central city of Flanders. It is also known as Flower City and is named after a world-renowned flower show every five years, with a population of less than 300,000. "A flowing water network divides Ghent into 26 islands. Barges, bridges, and old buildings are inferred on the four intersecting rivers of the city." If you know Ghent is in a few It used to be a very busy wharf before the century. All kinds of seafood goods are coming in and out here. You know that if you dont travel by boat in this city, its like you didnt breathe the smell of fish in Old Gent. It is impossible to find the romantic feelings of Ghent in the Middle Ages. In the most prosperous area, the two sides of the canal are medieval and prosperous guild buildings. We took a boat and listened to the cruise ship to explain the story of Ghent, while taking pictures with the camera, while the nose is constantly looking for the classical taste of the Middle Ages. The indescribably romantic atmosphere is full of the surrounding air. Walking on the water is the best angle of the city. You can look at the steeped Gothic church and enjoy the Flemish complex and beautiful steps in the reflection. Unconsciously, the water flow will take you into the medieval time.
