Gent (Ghent in English and Gand in French) is the capital and largest city of the East Flanders province (a Flemish region of Belgium). The city started as a settlement at the confluence of the Rivers Scheldt and Lys and in the Middle Ages became one of the largest and richest cities of northern Europe.
The Gravensteen is a castle in Gent originating from the Middle Ages. The name means "castle of the count" in Dutch.

Gent is really beautiful. It is the city of Belgium which I liked more. But I've never been to Brugge and someone says that Brugge is more beautiful.

Bruegge is of course very beautiful, but Ghent has for my feeling the more condensed medivial touch.
