Ghent is a really nice place! Many open minded people, one of the bigger cities in Belgium although much smaller compared to Brussels or Antwerp. It's full of modern and authentic coffee bars, lot's of places to eat where no one looks at you when you sit alone. Beautiful sight seeings, nice streets and historical buildings, alternative neighbourhoods and more common stores as well. Green and less busier areas not far from the city centre. It really has everything to offer for a small getaway as well for a solo trip.Posted: November 4, 2022
