Middelburg is the capital of the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands and one of the places you must visit if you want to experience the beauty of the Netherlands. The city dates back to the 9th century and is home to about 40,000 inhabitants.
When you visit Middelburg, there is one thing that you might not expect when you are wandering around. Although Middelburg is one of the most worth seeing cities in the Netherlands, there wasn’t much left of it during World War II. During the war, reconstruction of the city began, but it ended up being destroyed again. In November 1944, Middelburg was liberated and the reconstruction started all over again. The incredible workers and architects preserved the city as authentically as possible, rebuilding stone by stone the old medieval Middelburg.
Leiden is probably the most famous city on this list, but it is still not as popular as its counterparts Delft, Rotterdam, and Utrecht. Leiden is one of the most beautiful cities in the province of South Holland and has the second-largest historic city center in the Netherlands, which is also a listed monument. Many famous painters were born and raised in Leiden. Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Steen, Gerrit Dou and Frans van Mieris de Oudere come to mind. The city of Leiden is also called ‘sleutelstad’ or a key city. This refers to the city’s coat of arms. Leiden is also home to the oldest university in the Netherlands.
There is a lot to experience in Leiden, such as the oldest theater in the Netherlands, the Leidse Schouwburg from 1705, but what many people do not do in Leiden is visit the courtyards. The city of Leiden has many courtyards, cute alleys, and many other things to discover. It is also one of the best places to visit near Amsterdam. Amsterdam itself is a beautiful city we can not write about Amsterdam just in a single paragraph. One day trip to Amsterdam will feel you like you have visited heaven.
You want to visit the Netherlands but you do not know where to go? The city of Hoorn is a beautiful city in West Frisia in the province of Noord-Holland and about 30 minutes from Amsterdam. This city is not only very beautiful but also very quiet and peaceful. At the same time, it is also very lively. Hoorn is a city that has the feel and atmosphere of a village, which I enjoy very much. The first similar name Hoorn was used in the 8th century, but the city burned down and it took a while to rebuild. The new town of Hoorn dates back to the 12th century.
A beautiful city in the province of Utrecht to visit is Amersfoort. While many people visit the city of Utrecht these days, not many have heard of Amersfoort, even though it is close to Utrecht. Amersfoort is named after a fort in the river Amer, which is now called Elm. The city dates back to the 11th century.
There are many great things to do in Amersfoort. One of the most important sights of Amersfoort is the Mondriaanhuis because Amersfoort is the city of Piet Mondriaan.
