Ghent is a historic city, yet at the same time a contemporary one. It is located in the Flemish Region of Belgium and is the capital and largest city of the East Flanders province. The city is very busy with an important port and a well recognised university.
This medieval city is particularly beautiful at night. When the sun sets, the city lights up again. The Ghent lighting plan kicks in as thousands of lights are switched on. It’s not a mishmash of styles, but a carefully crafted network of atmospheres and accents. In 2004 the City of Ghent won the International city people light award for this lighting plan and the Michelin guide awarded it three stars.
