Until ESC/WOSC 2016!

Welcome to The Netherlands!

What makes The Netherlands so attractive is the 17th century historical atmosphere combined with the mentality of a modern metropolis creating a friendly and relaxed environment. The small scale of the buildings and the intimacy of the streets, canals and squares create an atmosphere that visitors find unique.
