Culture of The Hague. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Hague Among the cultural attractions of the city we should definitely mention Gevangenpoort Museum, which is located in a beautiful castle of the 16th century. Gevangenpoort is a pretty grim, but a no less attractive institution. It offers to its guests the exhibition of most unusual torture instruments. You can also visit the cell where once has been imprisoned Cornelius Witt.

The famous three-naved church is not only an important religious landmark, but also a valuable architectural monument. Elegant stained glass windows and arches, beautiful coats of arms decorating the hall of the church - every piece of furniture here is a valuable museum exhibit. Peace Palace belongs to more recent architectural monuments. Nowadays the palace often becomes the place of conduction of significant business activities. One of the symbols of the city is a beautiful arch erected in the 19th century – the Passage. Next to this amazing sight you will find cozy restaurants and souvenir shops.
Fans of exciting excursions should not forget to visit the center named Omniversum. Here visitors can watch the explosion of a volcano, to fly on a spacecraft and plunge into the depths of the ocean - all thanks to the unique visual effects. Madurodam, a large museum complex under the open sky, is another place of interest that cannot be ignored. Every year more and more buildings and exhibits appear here. Beautiful miniature city is nothing else but a miniature reproduction of Holland. The opening of this unusual open-air museum took place in 1952. Since that time it has been visited by more than 10 million travelers. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Lovers of thrill will enjoy a visit to the museum called "The prison gates". It is located in an old prison tower. Here visitors can see torture tools that have survived here, stroll through the deep dungeons, and see the cells in which prisoners have been kept. Art lovers will surely prefer to visit Mauritshuis museum that exhibits paintings by famous artists of the 17th century. Here you can see priceless masterpieces by Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and Hans Holbein.
Spui Those tourists who choose to begin acquaintance with the city from the railway station are incredibly lucky, as the building of the Station Den Haag Centraal, is without exaggeration one of the most beautiful places in the city. If you wish to further explore the city, you can visit Mauritshuis, Haags Historisch Museum, and also Escher in Het Paleis. These are three museums that will “open the soul” of the city, thereby acquainting you with its history and culture. Among other museums that tourists will find interesting, it is worth highlight the chic “Louwman Museum” which will please motorists, as well as a museum with the simple name “Museon”, where even the youngest tourists will be most entertained (there is a collection of interactive exhibits here, stuffed unique animals and works of art).

A beautiful outdoor museum can be found on the very shore of the North Sea. The sculptural composition based on the collection of Theo and Linda Scholten has been recorded to have attracted hundreds of tourists here for years. The sculptures themselves were created by the famous sculptor Tom Otterness. By the way, located nearby is Het Puntje, where the last scenes of the extremely popular film “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” were shot. Yet another interesting sculpture is located on Lange Voorhout, which is considered a street of diplomats (embassies of different countries are scattered everywhere). In addition to the monument, there are interesting shady alleys, as well as beautiful buildings here, among them; embassies, shops, and restaurants.
Den Haag Those who like examining interesting samples of sacred architecture will be delighted with Grote Kerk. Despite the fact that the cathedral is rather modest, it is very cozy here. Also in this kind of place comes the understanding that the best place where one can find peace of mind should not be sought. It is impossible to imagine acquaintance with the Netherlands without visiting the symbols of the country. We are talking about mills, and in the political capital of the Netherlands are several interesting places of this kind – Molendriegang, Molen de Salamander and Korenmolen De Korenaer.

Beautiful views of the beach can be admired from Skyview De Pier. Also, by going through the Celestial Vault, you can reach the edge of the sky – at least, so it seems because of the “surrealism” of the tunnel. Another interesting historical monument is Landgoed Ockenburg. In addition, a visit of sights interesting from an architectural point of view can be combined with a wonderful walk through the park with English landscape design. Hofje Rusthof also attracts connoisseurs of nature and remarkable architectural buildings. The historical quiet atmosphere and a charming garden await visitors.
