Ghent is an absolutely stunning city that sits at the confluence of the Scheldt and Leie Rivers.  In fact, much of the city is built up around these rivers, which intersect the city and give it the charm that has made it such a popular tourist destination.  In addition to its stunning city landscape, the city of Ghent is also well known for its cuisine and its beer.
