Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Luchteren is the rural hamlet of Drongen, which is itself a borough of Ghent, East Flanders, Flanders, Belgium. Its main streets are Beekstraat, Antoon Catriestraat and Gavergrachtstraat, the last one holding a small church. An important hamlet is Halewijn. Luchteren is located between Baarle, Drongen-Centre, Mariakerke, Landegem, Merendree, Sint-Martens-Latem and Vinderhoute.
Drongen is a borough of the city of Ghent. Drongen is divided into three neighbourhoods Drongen-Centre, Luchteren and Baarle. Drongen is known for its early medieval monastery, founded in the seventh century by the monk Amandus, the missionary of the Leie and Schelde. Destroyed by the Normans in 853, the monastery was rebuilt by the counts of Flanders. The monastery was the victim of the religious wars following the reformation, and in 1578 it was once again destroyed by Calvinists.
Luchteren is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in Europe worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of Europe.
