Delft, Netherlands


Delft, Vermeer's birthplace and a true gem of the Netherlands, located in the south-west of the country between The Hague and Rotterdam. The town's name comes from the Dutch word "dig", and it is quite clear: the main attraction of this town are the channels. Other outstanding facilities include The Old Church, built in the XIII century, the XV century New Church and the Prinsenhof, which once was the residence of William of Orange and now a museum. For a long time, Delft was a center of fine ceramics; on the Royal porcelain factory is still possible to see how craftsmen paint products.
