Ghent, Belgium

Ghent is a Flemish Belgian city (that means is Dutch speaking). It’s only half hour by train from Brussels and a one day trip is more than enough for sightseeing.

Any time of the year is great for visit: in summer is bursting with color, tourists and life…and sometimes relaxed cats in the windows! At the end of autumn the nature has a beautiful rusty shade and the city is not too crowded.

In Belgium there are many cats sleeping in the windows. And they are big! This one was very relaxed. She didn't react at all when I knocked on the window.
