See the folk, national and traditional dress that weave and preserve the stories about a nation's heritage, identity and values in the Netherlands
Bicycling is an institution in Dutch culture, and a network of dedicated cycling paths span the entire Euro-kingdom. A ride in the countryside during tulip season unfolds endless rows of brilliant prismatic color, as the nation’s iconic windmills appear intermittently on the horizon. In cities like Amsterdam, canals are flocked by variegated ribbons of slender historic houses, dating back to the 17th century. Little wonder the country has produced such prolific painters as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Vermeer.
