Hello all:

I visited a number of cities in Belgium, so I decided to start the photothreads for multiple cities at the same time. I'll be updating this thread along with the present one on Brussels. There will be more threads to come, too.

We took the intercity rail (very efficient and rather inexpensive) all around Belgium and the Netherlands. We stopped in Gent - here's the main station, Gent St. Pieters.



walking towards the Centrum









More to come. Cheers.

I used to study in this city for 3 years. The city is very lifely with a lot of young people, bars, festivals, concerts,...

This is a very beautiful and tolerant city. In my opinion it´s a nicer place than the highly appreciated Bruges.

Thanks folks :)

Ghent was a great city, in fact I preferred it to Bruges - it had a well-preserved historic centrum but did not have the tad of artificiality that I found in Bruges, or all the bloody tourists (I'm an anti-tourist type of tourist). Both were great, though

more...

^^ Apparently through time it has become completely impossible for you to take interest in any other Belgian city or town other than the one you live in :nuts: Just give the guy some time!

Mahratta, did you find the places & the snacks the people on the Belgian forum suggested to you? I hope you didn't find too many closed doors in Ghent: early august is when all the locals go on holidays and many bars and shops close for a week or two - because it's right after the july festival... I always find it a bit scary when I get home from vacation...

There are some really good pictures in this thread - and in the one you posted on Brussels too. Do you use an SLR, and if so: what type and what lens do you use?
