Rotterdam, mix and match of architectural experimentation

Talking about architecture, I would indeed choose the word “architectural” to summarize Rotterdam. Buildings there are crazy, it is a mix and match of different styles and I’ve been so amazed by it. As you maybe know, the city has been destroyed during WWII, and became a place for architectural experimentations.

The old city of Dordrecht celebrates its history

If you are looking to venture a city this summer, consider the old township of Dordrecht! Its rich history is still reflected in its medieval houses, merchant mansions, harbor quarters with warehouses, museums and churches. Dordrecht has almost 1,000 monuments to justify this.

Giethoorn, Venice of the North

Giethoorn has such a simple beauty that it hardly seems real. A bohemian canal, small wooden bridges, vivid flowers and pretty thatched-roof farmhouses and a fairytale-like garden. I felt like I was in a completely different time period! It was absolutely stunning!

Historical Dutch homes at Zaanse Schans

Located in Northern Holland, Zaanse Schans was created by architect Jaap Schipper who wanted to promote the industrial history of a typical Zaans residential area so he did so by importing windmills and historical Dutch homes. As soon as I entered Zaanse Schans I was instantly captivated with the quaint and picturesque neighbourhood.
