Proud Flandria is an open-air museum in which GENT is a unique architectural encyclopedia where there is logic, matter and poetry. Based on the number of cultural values, the city takes the second place in BELGIUM,  conceding only to the city of arts - ANTWERP. Ghent is a worthy rival to Bruges on the influx of tourists and the number of monuments. Is the city merchant, proud and rich, rebellious, proletarian ... or prudent?
And it is no by chance that it is called "the city of Splendor" ...
ANTWERP is the capital of the world of the XVI century, the birthplace of Flemish painting. Brilliant Rubens and Van Dyck lived and created there. The city of diamonds is a brilliant city in a golden ring of lush churches and stunning mansions. River fog, cries of seagulls, port cranes, festive vanity on the streets - forever alive ANTVERP calls us to a journey!

Departure is in the morning. Departure time depends on the city of departure and is reported when ordering a trip.

The second largest and the most considerable city in Belgium and also its biggest port, it is the main town of the province, Antwerp stretched on the coast of the deep Scheldt River. The city used to know both take-off, and falling that tempered character of its inhabitants, having made it not less strong, than diamonds. By the way, Antwerp wins the first place in the world by the amount of the processed and sold diamonds. And in the 16th century there was a saying in Europe: "The world is a ring, and Antwerp is a diamond on it".

Having joined the Hanseatic League in 1315, by the 16th century Antwerp turned into the second largest city after Paris in Europe to the north from the Alps. Trade gave a unique feeling of freedom and led to the development of arts, crafts of culture, printing and a finance. The exchange, transported here "for advantage of merchants of all the nations and languages" from Brugge, made Antwerp a financial center of the world. It is the hometown of the whole group of brilliant artists: Rubens, Virgil van Dijk, Bruegel’s family, Jordaens and the others, whose works decorate magnificent churches and the museums of the city.

 

Modern Antwerp is one of the recognized centers of the world fashion. Antwerp is cosmopolitan - it is a motley mixture of the people, cultures, architectural styles with the unique atmosphere and aura promoting the birth of talents. It is a paradise for tourists from around the world.

During the excursion we will approach a city symbol, its oldest construction is the Steen Castle. There is a Museum of Navigation today in it.

Today there is the museum too, in which halls of a collection of art objects are situated.

 

You won't be left indifferent by the magnificence of Grote-Markt. At this square the Town Hall of the 16th century and Gothic facades of buildings of shops and guilds are located.
