Holland, most call it The Netherlands, is famous for mixing the old world with the new. It is one of those few countries which seamlessly manages to mention words like old windmills and futuristic architecture in the same breath. You certainly have an exotic nightlife and inspired dishes to look forward to, but you also have candlelit dinners, historic stores and artistic masterpieces to choose from.
The Netherlands is a haven for bikers. The flat topography and incredible natural beauty combine to offer the most scenic landscapes to ride a bike in. The country might ask you to brave its strong winds, but it also offers well-maintained and dedicated bike lanes that crisscross over 32000 kms.
Natural beauty and scenic adventures might be some of the key charms of Holland, but your most memorable experience often comes from its unique café culture. What we (err, the Dutch) mean by cafes is basically a pub, a place for drinking, camaraderie, dining, talking and innovating.
The Grand Master of Art
Van Gogh. Rembrandt. Vermeer. And they’re just the most popular ones. The Netherlands has given birth to some of the greatest masters of art and you can find their stunning creations in museums and art galleries all over the country.
