City tours, excursions and tickets in Groningen 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
People in the Netherlands love and know how to celebrate holidays. Parties are held in a grand manner and in an atmosphere of complete identity. One of the most surprising, strange and amazing holidays is the meeting of the local Santa Claus or, as it is called in the Netherlands, Sinterklaas. He arrives in his ship from Spain with his black servants, Zwarte Piets, in mid-November. From this moment, the pre-holiday fuss begins in the country. Zwarte Piets that are walking around the streets, give out sweets or shower all passers-by with cookies, prepare lists of guilty and obedient children. Disobedient toddlers are frightened that the Zwarte Piets will take them to a terrible and distant Spain. On the night of December 5, children put a special slipper in the corridor, where Sinterklaas puts gifts and biscuits.
