City tours, excursions and tickets in Leiden and surroundings
Netherlands - moving around the country
To travel around the city and the suburbs, tourists are recommended to choose buses, trams, and trolleybuses. Almost all cities have night transport. Absolutely all cities are divided into certain transport zones, and this should be taken into account when buying a ticket. It is much more profitable to buy reusable tickets that offer unlimited number of rides within the prepaid travel zone. Travelers can buy a ticket at any kiosk or directly from the driver. In Amsterdam, 4 lines of the subway and several ferry lines are available in addition to the above mentioned public transport. Water transport is no longer focused on transportation, but on tours, so the cost of tickets is much higher.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Netherlands
In spring, another bright event is taking place in the Netherlands. That’s the Parade of Flowers. This is one of the most beautiful and grandiose festivals in the country. Twenty flower platforms and thirty wagons bring the procession from Noordwijk, through the largest flower park of Keukenhof, to Harlem. Throughout the summer, the country turns into a single holiday. Four major cities - Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht - host musical and theatrical festivals one by one. Once in 5 years, a parade of boats and sea vessels is held in Amsterdam. The next one will take place in 2025.
