Ghent is another beautiful historic town, similar to Bruges, but not quite as touristic.

The “noses of Ghent” candies are liquid filled (sugary!) gummy candies.

Inside the main cathedral is artwork of famous Belgian artists. These pieces are replicas of the original works once stolen by the nazis, and recounted in the movie Monuments Men. All but one was recovered and now sits in a private section of the cathedral.
