Which One To Choose for Erasmus?


Before I start talking about my first impressions of the city which is going to be my home for next few months – Ghent (Gent) – I should perhaps tell you why I have chosen to spend upcoming months of my Erasmus in this very city.

Which city to choose for my Erasmus

To be honest, I was already here a few months ago when I was travelling within my one week holiday in BENELUX. I really took a fancy to both the Netherlands and Belgium and in addition, one of the most amazing cities I have ever seen is undoubtedly Ghent. The impressions of this city have been so great that when there was an opportunity to choose a city for ERASMUS I decided to come back to Gent again. Ghent is a city with approximately 250 000 inhabitants, so a pretty big city, but what is really worth saying is that the one third of all people here is formed by students! Could be there anything better for a student than to go to a real student city?
