Ghent (in Dutch: Gent) is the fourth largest city of Belgium with about 250.000 inhabitants. Modern Ghent certainly cannot be overlooked in Belgium. The city has an important harbor, thanks to the canal Ghent-Terneuzen which allows sea-going vessels to bring their products to the city and its industrial hinterland.
