The Netherlands is much more than the stereotypes listed. This is one of the most picturesque states in Western Europe with an unusual nature, many castles and ancient cities.
The capital is Amsterdam, the quintessence of all the wonders that the Netherlands is famous for. This city is incredibly photogenic: magnificent architecture, picturesque canals, familiar even to those who have never been here before, flower farms, picturesque locals — I want to look at every detail, absorb and remember.
The main attractions are concentrated in the Center area, divided into the Old and New parts. The first, Audzeyds, is famous for the Red Light District: the vice settled here in the 14th century. The second, Nievesaid, is more sedate and respectable: the main Dam Square with the elegant Royal Palace and the monumental church of Nivekierk impresses with its grandeur. The best shopping is in the Jordan region, whimsical modern architecture is in the Ost district.
While Amsterdam enjoys freedom, The Hague settles the formalities: it is here that the Parliament, the government and the Palace of Peace are based, where the United Nations decides the fate of the planet. Far from politics, tourists admire the luxurious Binnenhof castle, the Lange Voorhout mansions, the Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture. A pleasant surprise: the best beach resort in the Netherlands (yes, there are those!) Is also here!
