Ghent was not really enclosed in the plan of my trip, which I actually did not have. I was rather planning to see magnificient Antwerp, which I have missed. Getting a possibility to surf on one of Ghent’s nomads couch, with whom I surprisingly had a lot in common, I decided to go for it and change my non-existing plan of journey. As Belgium is rather a small country, so are its cities. I spent as small amount of time in Ghent as I did in Brugge. About 24 hours. And I enjoyed it!
Ghent is known for its specific weed-culture, as it is a university city, situateted close to the Dutch border. I have to honestly admit, I did not see a lot of historical monuments or museums of Ghent, though my Belgian guide has showed me each corner of the city, which might be described as important.
Sadly, the weather was quite shitty, as almost always in the Netherlands or Belgium, because of its location close to the sea. I am sort of used to that, as in Poland I also live at the sea, so it is not a big deal for me. Especially in winter, when no one is expecting weather to be bearable anyway.
