Once upon a time there was… the port of Ghent

Portus Ganda is the place where the rivers Lys and Scheldt meet. Now it’s a place where pleasure craft are moored, but it used to be a major commercial hub and seaport. The lit silhouettes of Ghent buildings, both existing ones and buildings that have disappeared, bring this rich past back to life.

Do you recognize all the iconic buildings of Ghent?
