St Bavo's Cathedral
In the neighbourhood
Behind a charming 18th-century façade lurks a modern, airy building.
Ghent has something from every period of history and that also applies to the STAM - Ghent City museum: the 14th-century abbey, the 17th-century monastery and the new 21st-century development together form the Ghent City museum.
When you enter the splendid indoor garden of this former place of worship, it seems as if you have left the city.
