Take me to the Netherlands!

Holland (The Netherlands) is known worldwide for its tulip fields, windmills, delicious cheeses, and the largest number of bicycles per person. It’s a country of open and friendly people, fairy-tale houses, ancient castles and stunning landscapes. It is a country of free people, where everyone can find what he or she needs.

No one can stay indifferent to a noisy and playful Amsterdam with its magnificent museums, canals, coffee shops, and the red-light district. Walk around a friendly and quiet Rotterdam or a green Eindhoven, visit the village of windmills and the charming old town of Delft. Go to the Royal Tulip park in Lisse, wander around the Binnenhof castle in the centre of the Hague, and enjoy the sunset on a picturesque Scheveningen’s shore.

Welcome to the fairy tale!

The installation I Amsterdam, in front of Rijksmuseum, is a favorite place for photo sessions.

Here you can buy some Dutch herring, ’Haring’, which the natives are fond of.

The famous red-light district, De Wallen.

The windows of Amsterdam.

The city is especially charming in the evening.

Keukenhof, also known as the Garden of Europe, welcomes its visitors from the end of March till the end of May.

We advise you to go to the Keukenhof in April to see all the splendor of the blooming tulip fields.

These colorful houses are located in Houten.

A trip to Giethoorn, a village that is called ’Dutch Venice,’ will leave the most pleasant impressions.

Klompen are Dutch national clogs, and they’re some of the most popular souvenirs.

City hall in Gouda, the cheese capital of the Netherlands.

The purple fields in a natural area, Posbank.

The Ridderzaal Gothic castle is a part of an ancient complex of buildings, Binnenhof.

Delft is famous not only for its blue-and-white pottery, but also for its picturesque canals.

To see the famous windmills, go to the Kinderdijk village.

Or to the open air museum, Zaanse Schans.

Ijsselmeer Lake was formed after Zuiderzee Bay was closed by a 32-kilometer causeway.

You cannot help but fall in love with this country with its endless flower fields.

Rent a bike and ride along the quays and narrow streets.

Or just walk around the city.

Taste these delicious Dutch waffles with a caramel filling called ’stroopwafel.’

Enjoy the sunset on the shore of the North Sea, and let these pleasant memories warm you up until the next trip.

    The Tulip Festival in Holland begins in March. When my husband and I were there many years ago, there were swans swimming in the stream that runs through the gardens and wood ducks waddling through the flowers. It’s one of most lovely places on earth. Tourists might also want to find the Madurodam (the Miniature City). Re-blogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com
