Gent Belgium has a long and interesting history, which dates back to the 13th century. It was once Europe’s second largest city – after Paris. They say “walking around the city of Ghent is like walking through a historical painting”. It has an architectural masterpiece of castles, cathedrals, churches and old merchant houses. The medieval castle is situated in the middle of the city and has wonderful views from the top. You you can also visit the torture museum inside.
