you are drawn by fascinating old cities, beautiful countryside, rich
traditions, architectural marvels, or enjoy art and shopping Holland
offers all of this and more. Centrally located in the heart of Europe,
Netherlands is an affordable, compact and progressive country where nearly
everyone speaks English.
The capital Amsterdam has Europe’s largest and
best-preserved historic center. It is truly one of the world’s most
alluring cities, with hundreds of 17th century houses, canals and
museums where masters such as Van Gogh and Rembrandt
are on permanent display. The tiny towns and villages just outside
Amsterdam offer a rich tradition with locals sometimes still wearing
traditional garb and wooden shoes. Marvel over typical Dutch landscapes with windmills, dikes and in late spring millions of blooming tulips.
Outside of Amsterdam are some beautiful cities. Royal The Hague is a cosmopolitan city and the home of the Royal Family and the seat of the Dutch parliament. Not far from here is Rotterdam, one of the few thoroughly modern cities in Holland. The old medieval center of Utrecht
kindles a passion for the past! Stroll along the century-old canals,
and past the stately houses and wharves. To the south lies cosmopolitan
and historic Maastricht with cozy cafes and excellent museums.
