If you are in Gent, you cannot leave the city without passing by Graslei. It is the historical area right in the center with an exceptional view.
Within the 11th century, the river Lys became a major trading route in Europe. While the river lies between the medieval buildings of Gent, the area of Graslei was a trading center back then in Belgium.
Graslei looks gothic and beautiful in the pictures. In truth, it is magical in experience. It is romantic before the sunset, it is alluring when the sun goes down and the lights turn on.
