Ghent is a city located in the Flemish region of Belgium. It is the capital and largest city of the East Flanders province. The city started as a settlement at the confluence of the Rivers Scheldt and Lys and in the Middle Ages became one of the largest and richest cities of northern Europe. One of the highlights is the early 15th century Early Flemish polyptych panel painting the “Ghent Altarpiece”, also called the “Adoration of the Mystic Lamb”, by the van Eyck brothers. Today it is a busy city with a port and university.
