The city of Gent in Belgium has a small city centre and lots of medieval buildings. In my opinion Gent is nicer and more beautiful than the big tourist attraction city of Bruges. You certainly need to visit Gent after sunset. Every day monuments and streets are lit until midnight. All photos: 18 and 19 November 2016.
