21 Arrival Guide Belgium Flanders Ghent

22 Belgium Belgium has been an independent constitutional monarchy since Belgium has an area of 30,528 km² and is located centrally and strategically in Europe. Two out of three citizens of the European Union live within a radius of 350 km around Brussels, the capital of Belgium and Europe. Belgium Flanders Ghent In Belgium three cultures coexist: the Flemish, the French and the German. In 1980, the country s institutional system was reshaped to accommodate that reality. Currently, there are three language-based Communities, which are self-governing in many important areas such as education, culture, economy, agriculture, social welfare and environment. Belgium has a maritime climate, as a consequence of which fog and rain are common here, as is snow in winter. The most pleasant months in terms of temperature are between April and October. Temperatures vary between 10 C and 35 C in summer and -15 C and 15 C in winter. Rainwear, warm clothes and an umbrella will be needed, but not all the time! 22

23 Flanders Arrival Guide Flanders has an area of 13,522 km² and is situated in the northern region of Belgium. This Dutch-speaking part of Belgium boasts about 6 million inhabitants. French is spoken in the southern part of Belgium, Wallonia, and to a large extent in Brussels as well. The very small German-speaking community is located on the eastern border of Belgium. Flanders is in the centre of the major West European industrial regions. The dense road, waterway and rail network, four sea ports and three airports make Flanders the ideal gateway to Europe, which is why many multinationals have chosen Flanders as the base for their operations on the European market. Ghent is situated in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium, 50 kilometres from Brussels, Bruges and Antwerp. It is important to realise that the language spoken (and lectured) in Ghent is Dutch, the language of twenty million Dutch and Flemish people. Dutch is rather similar to German and is related to English as well There are only some marginal differences between the Dutch spoken in Flanders and that in The Netherlands, comparable to the differences between British and American English (mainly in the accent, and in some vocabulary). Multicultural society In Flanders, several cultures coexist peacefully. The Turkish, African, Moroccan and Asian minorities are considered to be cultures that enrich the Flemish culture. Mutual respect is very important in a multicultural society. Racism, violence and discrimination against migrants are crimes that will be prosecuted. Interpersonal relations At first, Flemish people appear to be modest and introverted. Initially, most of them do not make contact easily with people they do not know. From the moment they get to know you, however, they become very sociable. Never hesitate to start a conversation, the Flemish are helpful and friendly, especially if you try to talk their language. If people hear that you do not speak Dutch easily they will 23 Belgium Flanders Ghent

24 switch to French, English, German or another language to help you. Belgium Flanders Ghent Belgian and Flemish people meet at several places: people with a common interest often get together for activities like sports, cooking, playing games or simply for a chat in a pub; young people meet at home, at their student room, in pubs and in clubs. When the weather is nice, students also meet on the Graslei in the centre of the city. It is good to know that if you are invited to dinner, you should bring your hosts a little present. Students prefer to cook together and, normally, everybody contributes to the meal. 24

25 Ghent Arrival Guide Ghent, which was the 16th century s most powerful city in north-western Europe, next to Paris, is now the lively core of a large area (population 237,000) with a historical centre that breathes history and charm. Cosy corners alternate with pleasant and busy shopping streets. Ghent distinguishes itself from other Flemish cities by its combination of industry and commerce, and agreeable charming inner city that has preserved many of the old medieval quarters. Ghent is at the heart of Europe, being only 30 minutes away from Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges, the coast, France and the Netherlands. It is also connected to modern seaports, being the terminus of important navigation routes, all of which provides considerable industrial activity. A network of waterways connects Ghent with a vast hinterland. Situated at the junction of the motorways E17 (Lisbon- Stockholm) and E40 (London- Istanbul), the city is as easy to reach by car as by train. The city is, moreover, also a cultural attraction with its important music and film festivals, as well as its varied theatre and performance scene. Did you know that Ghent is a very old, but at the same time a very young city? For every traditional theatre, there are five small, independent venues and for each commercial cinema complex, there is an arthouse cinema as well. The music scene is live and original, with many international bands playing Ghent, and the Belgian festivals, all year round. In June 2009, Ghent has received the title Unesco Creative City of Music.
