Travel Guide to Dordrecht, Netherlands

Due to its unique architectural style Dordrecht has managed to keep its unforgettable atmosphere of the Medieval. All buildings in the town are created in the same style and as many of them have been built centuries ago, modern houses are made with influence of that style and so they look old too. This is a large port city that is conveniently located between a web of canals and rivers. Many of the canals are manmade and have been created in order to drain surrounding lands.
Some people call Dordrecht «a miniature Venice». There are no high buildings here at all. Instead of them you will find narrow streets coming along canals, elegant bridges and passages. River boat rides remain the most popular entertainment of tourists. You can find moored yachts simply everywhere in Dordrecht. For local people they are a usual and an ordinary transport. For some people yachts even act like homes. In order to examine the city better and get acquainted with main sights of this place, you can rent a bicycle. This is very popular type of transport among the inhabitants of Dordrecht. There are many roads for pedestrians and bicycle drivers, so you can start your adventure safely and don’t be afraid of heavy automobile traffic.
The city features wide choice of interesting monuments and sights, but the most attractive of them are surely old buildings. Many of them have been turned into cafes and restaurants, the others are abandoned, but they are still very important from the point of view of the historical heritage. The suburbs of the city also have something to look at. Кinderdijk town seems to be the most interesting one as there you will find ancient windmills that still keep the original decoration.
