Floralien Gent Ghent Reviews
Floralien Gent, Belgium Aug 12, 2008
For some people, Ghent is the real diamond of Flanders and Belgium. In a unique way, Ghent has managed to preserve its medieval power while keeping up with the times. The city center alone is a showcase of medieval Flemish wealth and commercial success. Modern Ghent certainly cannot be overlooked in Belgium. The city has an important harbor, thanks to the canal Ghent-Terneuzen which allows sea-going vessels to bring their products to the city and its industrial hinterland.
Ghent is “the flower” city of Belgium. Flower growers from the region around Ghent sell their beautiful begonia's and azalea's all over the world. Every 5 years the successful 'Gentse Floraliën" (Ghent Flower Show) t kes place at the EXPO Flanders.
Organised by the Royal Society for Agriculture and Botany flower and plant exhibition, it's one of the most beautiful plant exibition in Europe. The next Floralien of Ghent will take place from 16th until 25th of April 2010.
The entrance fee cost about 10 euros and you can spend easily a few hours walking around.
