If you go to Ghent and do not go see Jan van Eyck's "The Mystic Lamb," you are missing an opportunity to see one of the greatest works of art ever made. A masterpiece of 15th Netherlandish painting, this huge altarpiece is tucked away in a corner of the cathedral and you do have to pay 4 euro to get in. You'll get an audio guide with that, so it's a small price to pay. The cathedral itself is lovely but the star of Ghent is "The Mystic Lamb." Go as early as you can so that you can avoid being boxed into a small room with too many people.
