Spectacular photos. I like this city, it's kinda like Amsterdam (I'm not sure if all Dutch cities carry that look) but cleaner and more laid back.

Many cities in Holland looks like smaller versions of Amsterdam with canals and typical dutch architecture. Just like you can see similarites between cities in most countries.

A lot of (mid size) cities in the Netherlands had a similar look as a city like Amsterdam until recently. But many of these cities changed a lot, for the most part due to industrialization, the rise of the automobile (reclaiming canals for paved roads) and WWII. Luckily some cities were spared of bombings and canal reclamation.


Thanks for the comments.

Awesome pics of a great city (it seems)!

Some of them remind me a lot of the relaxed atmosphere in Utrecht, my 2nd favorite city (after The Hague).

Not really, about 90 percent of the signs are monolingual in Dutch, the other 10 procent is bilingual. So there are some signs in Frisian but they are more for decoration purposes. It's not like Brussels for example.

Outside the municipality of Leeuwarden, every other municipality can adopt its own language policy in Friesland.

Looks rather dense for a city of 97,000. Lovely city, anyway. I really like Frisia, specially rural Frisia

Great pictures of Leeuwarden. I study in this city. It looks quite big for a city with almost 95.000+ people.
