How to get there... from Ghent

Before Vienna, Drupal Developer Days 2022 was hosted by the lovely Belgian city of Ghent.

It was originally planned for 2020, but then we were all busy by keeping ourselves safe during the pandemic lockdown... good that this period is over and we can meet in person again!

Far from the crowds of Brussels or Antwerp, and sometimes overseen in the shadow of its neighbor Bruge, Ghent has a lot to offer! Well maintained medieval architecture mixed with modern infrastructure, car-free central area, University, and Drupal, of course!

So let's see how one can get from Ghent to Burgas

 

 

The quickest way

  1. Take a Flibco bus from Ghent to Charleroi airport. There are about 10 routes a day, journey takes 1 hour 45 minutes
  2. Take any of 18 possible connection flights to Burgas. Recommended connections are via Sofia, Bratislava, Budapest, Prague and Vienna
