I do not know how about you but if you are born and grew up somewhere than whole world is measured to that experience, meaning if you are from Gent anywhere you go you'll try to find Gent back and that will be very difficult task.

As many of you know I'm from Prague and anywhere i go I literealy look to find Prague back, there is a street in Utrecht where I have found it back, there are spots in London, Paris or Berlin too even in Rome and yes there is one beautiful medieval building at the river in Gent where I have found Prague back too.

The Lion's Mound (French: Butte du Lion, lit. "Lion's Hillock/Knoll"; Dutch: Leeuw van Waterloo, lit. "Lion of Waterloo") is a large conical artificial hill located in the municipality of Braine-l'Alleud, Belgium. King William I of the Netherlands ordered its construction in 1820, and it was completed in 1826. It commemorates the location on the battlefield of Waterloo where a musket ball hit the shoulder of William II of the Netherlands (the Prince of Orange) and knocked him from his horse during the battle. It is also a memorial of the Battle of Quatre Bras, which had been fought two days earlier, on 16 June 1815.

 

Next to that is the Panorama of the Battle of Waterloo (French: Panorama de la Bataille de Waterloo) is a rotunda in Belgium that houses a monumental panoramic painting of the Battle of Waterloo. The neoclassical building is located immediately to the north of the Lion Mound, on the battlefield of the Battle of Waterloo, in the Belgian municipality of Braine-l'Alleud, in the province of Walloon Brabant.

The building and the painting were protected as historical monuments in 1998. In 2008 the Belgian government proposed that the panorama should be included within a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing.
