What you'll do

We will take a look at an old monastery with a magnificent garden and lanterns made of real Delft porcelain. The history of the modern Netherlands began here. And here a tragic murder happened. Let's talk a little about historical incidents and treachery, and then visit a shop with nostalgic toys, retro candy canes, kerosene lamps and other very necessary things.
We will walk along the canals to the local “leaning” tower, examining old houses with coats of arms and other attributes of a decent, respectable life. Let's take wonderful photos. Let's talk about how light unscrupulousness helps to stay forever even in the absence of talent. We will find one of the coziest courtyards, where we will check if the Delft apple pie is as good as it is said about it.

We will walk around the ancient cathedral of the 13th century, where Jan Vermeer is buried. Anthony Leeuwenhoek and the distinguished privateer Pete Hine. Let's talk about pirates and privateers, about the times of great discoveries, the West India Company, outstanding adventures and the slave trade. Are you tired? Let's take a look at one of the best chocolates in the Netherlands. Or maybe you dream of mastering the secrets of the art of chocolatier? And it is possible! And if you don't like chocolate, it doesn't matter. After all, it sells almost the best ice cream in the country, sometimes with very unexpected additives.

Where you'll be

Delft (Delft) is the first capital of the Netherlands: this city was chosen for his residence by William of Orange, who led the uprising against the Spanish in the 16th century. When the prince was killed by the conspirators, he was buried in Nieuwe Kerk. Since then, the deceased representatives of the Dutch royal family have been buried in this attraction.Delft resembles a toy town - old low-rise buildings, numerous canals, no crowds.
