Delft, Netherlands

Delft is a small picturesque town in the South of The Netherlands, famous for its association with the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange - Nassau. It  is said to be one of the best-preserved, “historic” towns in the country. If you’re ever in Delft, be sure to contemplate its  charming canals, peaceful walkways, the Oude Kerk, (Old Church), Nieuwe Kerk (with the tomb of William of Orange), the Stedelijk Museum Het Prinsenof that has an impressive collection of Dutch decorative arts and last but not least the Vermeer Trail (named like this after the famous painter).
